All CMCSS high school online graduation celebrations will be posted on www.cmcss.net and social media on Thursday, May 21 at 4 p.m. Although the district planned to release these videos at the times and dates of the originally scheduled ceremonies for each school, we want to celebrate the district’s almost 2,400 graduates in unity. Be sure to watch when you can and share this info with your friends!
Class of 2020 – New Cap and Gown orders – revised May 13, 2020
Seniors who have NOT ordered or reordered a cap and gown will need to do so if you plan to participate in the planned graduation ceremony this summer. You will need to order the CAP & GOWN UNIT on the Jostens.com website. Tassel, Diploma and diploma covers are already included in the pricing.
IF YOU ORDERED A CAP & GOWN ON THE SCHOOL ORDER FORM, YOU WILL NEED TO REORDER ONLINE SO YOU CAN NOW PAY FOR IT. YOUR ORDER WILL NOT BE DUPLICATED.
The direct link and details on how to order are posted on the Kenwood High website and the Senior Class website. Once your order is paid for, it will be mailed to your home.
The direct link to the page is below. You will need to scroll down to see the Cap & Gown Unit.
Parents & Seniors: If you have NOT ordered a graduation cap & gown OR if you ordered at school using the BASIC ORDER FORM, you will now need to ORDER -OR- RE-ORDER ONLINE due to the school closures and CDC/COVID restriction.
This applies to all seniors who ordered the BASIC required package only and were expecting to pay on delivery day. Do not worry, you won’t be charged for a duplicate order.
Orders that have already been paid for are now being mailed to your homes by the Jostens Rep.
If you still owe payments for an order you placed a deposit on, you will need to finish those payments online to receive your order by mail. You were sent an email or text from Jostens with a code/password OR you can use “lookup” to access your account up info. You must know the email address used. Go to Jostens Payments.
I have included the step-by-step instructions for the Basic Cap & Gown ORDERS AND RE-ORDERS and the online payment instructions on the Senior Class Website.
KHS Graduation dates are tentatively set for June 25 or July 16 at the KHS Stadium depending on state and CDC regulations at that time.
Please email Jill Smith, Senior Class Sponsor if you have questions about graduation orders.
Parents and Students: (ASSIGNMENTS DEADLINE WEDNESDAY, MAY 6)
KHS is offering Enrichment Assignments for students to have the opportunity to RAISE their N3 grades to the next letter grade up if they were passing the original assignment – if they made a B, C, or D).
