SENIORS will be finished on May 26th and will not return to school on Friday, May 27th.
Students meeting all graduation requirements and wishing to participate in graduation ceremony must purchase a cap and gown from the school sponsored provider. Only qualifying members of the Jones High School chapter of the National Honor Society will be allowed to wear the official chords and medals sponsored by that organization. NO OTHER REGALIA WILL BE WORN DURING THE CEREMONY. Parents will be provided with seating on the field near their student. Only parents or guardians that have been listed by the student will be allowed in the student/parent seating area. All other visitors are asked to remain in the stands throughout the ceremony. Grandparent and seating for handicapped will be available on the ground near the stage area.
It is sometimes necessary for students to finish some credits during the summer immediately following graduation. These students will be allowed to participate in graduation only if the deficiency can be overcome in one summer. The administration will determine if this is possible. Students attending CATS must have completed that program prior to participation in the graduation ceremony. Appropriate attire is required for the graduation ceremony. “Flip-flop” type shoes, sneakers, or unsightly footwear will not be allowed. Boys are required to wear long pants preferably slacks. Students needing assistance with this requirement should see the counselor several weeks prior to graduation.
