Tassels Will be Available on Wed. and Thurs. for Seniors Who Did Not Receive Them at Check-Out

Due to a logistical snafu, some seniors did not receive a tassel at Senior Check-Out.  It appears this was a problem for students who just ordered the tassel.  If your child ordered a cap and gown, the tassel should be packed in with the cap. For those seniors who did not receive a tassel, they will be available to pick up in the house offices on Wednesday from 7:40AM until the end of school, and on Thursday from  7:40AM to 11AM. Your child must pick up the tassel at their own house office.  If you are unable to pick up the tassel during those times, Ms. Stonehill will be distributing the remaining tassels to seniors at senior line-up before graduation (beginning at 4PM).

Transportation After SouthFest

With the prom and SouthFest just one day away, we want to encourage you to talk to your kids about their plans for transportation after SouthFest.  Unlike in years past when there were not many options for transportation, most seniors now have their own uber accounts and are used to ordering cars for themselves. We have decided that it makes the most sense to have seniors use their own accounts if they plan to take an uber after SouthFest.  It also will help to keep our expenses down to have seniors pay for their post-Southfest transportation.  If your child does not have an uber account or has any issue with the expense, we are more than happy to order and pay for an uber for them. Please encourage them to ask a chaperone in the front hall area if transportation is an issue and we will make arrangements for them, no questions asked.
