Things to Know
Students will be held accountable for returning textbooks and other instructional materials assigned to them throughout the year. All students are required to return their textbooks, library books, and other assigned instructional materials no later than the 3rd Tuesday in July. The school district will receive any items after this date, but will still require students to pay for the item because new instructional materials will have already been purchased. Students may be required to pay for these items prior to their participation in the Elementary Field Day event, 9th Grade Dance or Senior Prom. All student fines must be paid prior to graduation

Message from Jostens
Attention all seniors and senior parents!
It is not too late, if you still need to order your cap and gown unit or other graduation products, visit our website www.grad-auto.com<http://www.grad-auto.com>
and we will get your items to you as quickly as possible. We recommend that you do not order any later than 2 weeks before graduation to allow for mailing time and/or delivery time.
IT IS IMPORTANT
to know, if you are borrowing or using a cap and gown unit from a previous year, you would still need to order the 2013 class medallion and souvenir tassel that accompany all cap and gown units for the school. You can only place this order by calling or office at 253-210-0575 because it is not offered online.
If you have any other questions, please email us at email@example.com
