2024 Graduation Checklist

Outstanding Student Fees and Fines

Caps and gowns will not be distributed to Senior students unless all fees and fines have been paid, from all four years of high school.

Please also be aware that our financial secretary will be busy on the day of Senior Checkout, working with students and families who are in the building for checkout. She will not be in her office and will not be able to answer the phone that day to answer questions or take payment.

Seniors! This is important. We urge you to not wait to take care of your fees and fines until the day of Senior Checkout; it will make your day much longer and much more stressful than it needs to be. Start working on this now.

Those needing to view or pay student fines and fees can log in to Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Verify the student is listed and then click the green arrow to be taken to a screen to pay.
