Cap and Gown Update
To date, about half of the senior class has ordered the required cap and gown for graduation.  Due to supply chain delays, waiting until later to order a cap and gown may mean it doesn’t arrive in time for graduation.  Additionally, shipping costs will go up in January.  If you haven’t ordered, you can do so at highschool.herffjones.com.  All ordering details are in the senior packet that went home November 4th.  The back of the bright green important dates also contains information about the cap and gown.
