We will be reviewing the details of this day at the required assembly on May 19th.  It will be here before you know it.  Make sure that you make grades, pass Senior Interview & Website exhibition, meet all the requirements to graduate, pay your fines, be safe, and do not do anything to jeopardize participation in prom or the ceremony.  Your families, friends, teachers, and Grade Level Team are looking forward to celebrating your accomplishments. 


  • Any residual fines for textbooks, Chromebooks, athletic equipment will interfere with your ability to acquire your cap and gown and graduation.  

  • Current textbooks for this term should be returned directly to your teacher who assigned it to you to prevent any new fines. 

  • Previous Textbooks/books etc.  that you have not returned before the current semester will show in your student portal as a fine or will soon convert into an outstanding fine.  Any and all fines will keep you from receiving a cap and gown.  It is your responsibility to return all items you are responsible for or pay the fine by Tuesday, May 23rd.  See Ms. Gallardo in the library to return any textbooks, novels, library books, etc. by 5/23. 

  • Athletic Equipment Fines:  All equipment returns or fines must be resolved by Tuesday, May 23rd. Don’t delay, see Coach Mittry in his office or it will keep you from receiving your cap and gown.

  • Chromebook purchase opportunity:  You may purchase your current Chromebook anytime before Tuesday, May 30th.  Avoid any lines and do it early.  The process to purchase the Chromebook begins at the finance office to pay and get the receipt.  Then take the receipt and computer to the library to check it in, have it converted from a SCHS asset, and then it will be reset to be exclusively yours.
