Senior End of Year Updates

Senior End of Year Updates

Cougar Seniors,


I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  I appreciate your patience and understanding over the past few weeks while we deal with remote learning and planning the rest of the year.  Here is the latest information on several items.



We absolutely want to hold in-person graduation ceremonies. However, our ability to do that will depend on state rules regarding large gatherings. With that in mind, all four high schools have adopted these schedules:


*If gathering restrictions are lifted by Sunday, June 21st, graduation ceremonies will be held outdoors at each high school on Friday, June 26th at 7 p.m.  Rain dates are June 27th at 1 p.m. or June 28th at 1 p.m.


*If gathering restrictions are lifted by Sunday, July 12th, graduation ceremonies will be held outdoors at each high school on Friday, July 17th at 7 p.m.  Rain dates are July 18th at 1 p.m. or July 19th at 1 p.m.


*If gathering restrictions are lifted by Sunday, August 2nd, graduation ceremonies will be held outdoors at each high school on Friday, August 7th at 7 p.m.  Rain dates are August 8th at 1 p.m. or August 9th at 1 p.m.


If in-person graduation is not possible, we are considering options for virtual graduation ceremonies. 



We will hold a senior prom at each high school IF large-gathering restrictions are lifted or significantly relaxed between now and in-person graduation. 


This event will be limited to seniors and the date of a senior.  Please understand this event may look very different from the traditional prom due to the venue and any restrictions in place.  We will continue to discuss what this would look like as the governor updates us over the next few weeks.


Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold a senior prom if the governor does not lift or significantly relax gathering restrictions.



Cap and Gown / Senior Awards 

On May 13th, throughout the day, each high school will distribute caps and gowns to seniors.  At this time Senior Honors Night certificates will also be given to seniors.  These items will be distributed in a “drive up and drive through” format at each campus.  An electronic copy of the Awards Night brochure will be emailed to senior parents for a keepsake. After May 13th, each HS principal will provide Tom Hernandez the names of students recognized so they can be shared with the community.


Final Transcripts

We are working on an electronic Final Transcript Request Form. Once that form is complete we will contact all Seniors. 


Senior Superlative Awards Voting

If you have not already voted, please use this link to vote.  

Voting will end on Friday, April 24th


We will communicate any updates about these activities as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience while we continue this unexpected journey to end the school year. 


Take care and Go Cougars!
