Seniors will need to check in all textbooks (old and from this year), their Chromebook, and library books or calculators they have borrowed. They will need to pay any overdue fines. When all materials are returned and fines are paid, they will be given six wristbands, which are the "tickets" to get in to graduation.
Checkout will take place before school and Access period on May 24-25 (8-8:45 a.m.) in front of the office and after school May 30 (3:15-4 p.m.) May 31 (12:45-1:45 p.m.).
NOTE: All the seniors who have outstanding materials from their years here at FHS received an email notice from destiny specifying what the student owes and the balance due. Students who lost/damaged the items listed on the destiny bill must clear all their debts using the link above. This will give the opportunity to clear any missing items before the senior shows up to the checkout process which takes place May 24-June 1. Students who did not receive the email are in good status and only will have to show up during the senior checkout week to turn in their current items such as textbooks, library books, calculators, and Chromebooks.
Just a reminder that all seniors must turn in proof of senior service hours by May 1, 2024 in order to walk in our graduation ceremony. All seniors will be added to our Community Service Google Classroom, where they submit their proof of hours. Student should keep an eye out for an invite to join the classroom.
Each senior will receive 6 "tickets" in form of wristbands for guests at graduation. Each guest, regardless of age, must have a wristband to enter. All seniors can retrieve their wristbands at senior checkout once they are cleared of any debts (emails about account balances for books, etc. will be sent by administration) and their chromebook is turned in. If you have any books, calculators, etc. from the past that you are no longer using, please scan those into the teacher you got those from now. The more you can turn in before checkout, the better. The ceremony will also be livestreamed and recorded for those unable to attend.
Seniors who have guests needing limited mobility seating (wheelchair, cannot walk down the stairs, etc.) can reserve this on their senior graduation survey, which will be sent the first week of May. There will be room for up to one person with special needs and one caregiver to sit with them allotted for each request. Please note that these seats will be at the top of the stadium and many may be in the sun, as there is little shade in the bleachers.
Each senior will receive a six (number subject to change every year) graduation wristbands upon checkout — one for each guest. Checkout requires that they turn in their district Chromebook to our tech office and all books to their teachers the week before graduation. Seniors can give wristbands to other seniors if they do not need them, but seniors will not be provided with more than their designate number of wristbands. The ceremony will be live streamed for anyone to watch from the comfort of their own home.
Parking will be extremely limited on graduation night. We will clear the parking lot at 1 p.m. and gates will reopen at 4 p.m. for parking. If you are bringing a guest who cannot easily walk to the stadium and they have a limited mobility parking pass, please bring that so you can use our disabled parking slots. Each family is asked to bring only one car to graduation, as we do not have enough parking slots for more than one car per family. Please plan to carpool and be respectful if parking in neighboring streets.
A Google form will be sent to seniors after Spring Break with a list of staff who are available to select from as to who will read your name at graduation. Please watch your email for the form and deadline.
Diplomas will be mailed to all graduating seniors the week after graduation, provided they passed all required classes and cleared any fines. Please make sure your home address is accurate in Parent Vue now.
If you qualify for a graduation cord through a club or program, your club advisor or department chair will be arranging a pick-up time. This includes the Seal of Biliteracy cords, which will be distributed by the World Language department.
