Cap and Gown Feedback
Thank you for taking the time to share your preference about our caps and gowns. Graduation is an important celebration of all that our students have achieved, and we were excited to see over 800 responses from parents, students, teachers, and community members. As you can see in the chart below, over 75% of respondents preferred changing to a navy blue gown.
Changing to navy is exciting, as we can now have a graduation gown that matches our school colors. However, we respect and understand that we are not in complete agreement about the change. We will find a way to respectfully retire the royal blue gown. In addition, GHS will purchase a few extra navy gowns to loan out in case a graduate was planning on borrowing a royal blue gown they already had access to.

Safety and Security is top priority for Gaylord Community Schools and we wanted to provide a link for the state wide OK2SAY program. OK2SAY is the student safety program which allows students to confidentially report tips on potential harm or criminal activities directed at students, school employees, and schools. It uses a comprehensive communication system to facilitate tip sharing among students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs, and law enforcement officials about harmful behaviors that threaten to disrupt the learning environment.
