    • Transcripts


    Graduation dress code has changed to accommodate students in our outside Graduation venue.  You can wear the outfit you planned on previously and/or apply these new requirements:

    • School appropriate shorts/jeans have been approved.
    • Consider shoes that are appropriate for a lot of walking, including sandals.  I do not recommend any high heels due to gravel/grass potential plus the large distances due to social distancing.  Please consider alternative shoes.
    • School appropriate t shirts/shirts with collars.
    • Decorating your graduation cap or gown is NOT permitted.  Contact Jostens via text to their local office at 940-382-8948 if you need to purchase another item.  Jostens will be TMS to purchase tassels or caps.
