If you need additional tickets, please talk with other seniors who may not need all their tickets and would be willing to help you out. No one will be admitted without a ticket.

Try on your cap and gown to make sure it fits properly. A gown should not be so long it catches in your shoe heel—hem the gown if necessary. Any gown shorter than 12 inches from the floor should be exchanged as soon as possible (see Mrs. Long for exchanges).

Good news on the latest air quality testing results.  The official report noted that, "The indoor air samples did not show a fungal amplification or an altered indoor fungal ecology on this day."  A link to the official reports may be found below.

SUMMER 2018

The most recent random sample air quality tests showed a normal fungal ecology in your school EXCEPT for ONE isolated area:

The hallway near classroom 2113 had slightly elevated counts.  The lab recommends retesting again soon.  No other action was recommended.
