Seniors are expected to conduct themselves according to the same rules of behavior required for other students. The school will take appropriate measures regarding disruptive behavior and pranks, which interfere with the normal school routine. We ask for your cooperation in helping end the year in an orderly and appropriate manner. We hope no students choose to disappoint family and friends by unwise actions, which result in their exclusion from end of the year ceremonies as part of the required disciplinary measures. All graduating seniors are held to the highest behavior expectations. Any inappropriate behavior between now and graduation will be handled according to the conduct policy in the student handbook, including exclusion from the graduation ceremony. A blank diploma will be given to any graduate who exhibits any inappropriate behavior during the graduation ceremony.
ALL fees must be paid in full by Friday, May 10th, at 2:15 pm. Seniors who do not pay their fees will not participate in the graduation ceremony, and will not receive their diploma! Check with the main office to see if you have a remaining balance.
Senior Clap Out/Lunch will begin Monday, May 20th, at 7:30 am in the high school cafeteria. Seniors will pick up their caps and gowns at the high school before being transported by bus to the other buildings in the district to parade through the hallways as students, teachers, and administrators congratulate them one final time. Seniors will also have their composite pictures taken in their cap and gown BEFORE the senior clap out. Seniors will also be able to view the senior slideshow at this time. Please send any pictures you want included in the slideshow by May 1st to hsyearbook@gapps.hls.k12.oh.us.
