PLEASE Use the link provided below to order or re-order the basic cap & gown pkg. online.  Once paid for your order will be mailed to the address you provide.




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.

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.
