Graduation is schedule for the last week of school: Our graduation date will be FRIDAY, JUNE 7th, 2019 at 6pm at Southwestern College. Our Cap and Gowns will cost $22.75 for students interested in KEEPING their gown. For students not interested in keeping their Cap and Gown, we will provide a Cap and Gown (that must be returned) at no cost. This year we will be working with the company Balfour and our local vendor Mr. David Honnold to provide us our Cap and Gowns. In the early months of 2019, I will continue to provide more information about graduation as I find out more details.

Non-Privileged List:

  • We will start publishing the NPL on-line w/ the SUHI’s Week-at-a-Glance (SWAGG) beginning in January when we return from Winter Break.
  • Seniors end up on the NPL for attendance issues, library fines, owed uniforms for sports, owed costumes for VAPA, or owed money to the ASB. Students can also end up on the NPL for disciplinary reasons. Administrators, at any time, can place Seniors on the NPL.
  • Seniors on the NPL cannot attend Prom, Grad Nite, or our Graduation Ceremony.

Senior Privileges:

Seniors, please continue to perform and behave as the model students that you are. Visitors to our school, ALWAYS compliment the way our students behave and show courtesy and respect. However, students who display conduct that violates school policy will face disciplinary action. Any Senior who faces disciplinary action runs the risk of losing Senior Privileges. The loss of Senior Privileges will include, but are not limited to, not being able to participate in Prom, Grad Nite, and our Graduation Ceremony. In some cases, the severity of the situation will result in alternate school placement for the rest of the year. Therefore, Seniors continue to do the right thing and always follow the Red Devil Way!
