Your prompt attention to this matter can be rectified with the front office.  Please call or come in to take care of this with Mrs. Roth.

If you have any questions, you can call Mr. Tymko.

Grade 12 Graduation Expectations:

In order to participate in the graduation celebrations, the graduate MUST attend class.  Failure to attend classes will result in withdrawal from that course and potentially prohibit Graduation.   School Administration will post 4 grad lists throughout the year: November, January, April & June.  If you are NOT on the Grad List, it is your responsibility to speak to Mr. Tymko regarding your status.

**NOTE:  Parents CANNOT call to “blanket excuse” their child from classes; this is not our policy and will not be supported as it impedes student learning and student success.  This includes ALL students, even those 18 years and older J Thank you for helping us nurture responsible citizens!
