Attention Seniors:

On Tuesday May 5th, 2020, we will be filming the conferring of diplomas portion of our virtual graduation on the South High School stage.  This will include students dressed in their cap and gown walking across the stage to receive their diploma.  A professional photographer will also be on hand to take pictures of each graduate. Social distancing guidelines are expected to be followed by all students. In order to maintain social distancing, students will be scheduled to report in small groups to South High School's student parking lot at a specific time.   Please arrive at your designated time dressed in your cap and gown (make up on, hair fixed) and wearing a mask.  You will be allowed to remove your mask briefly if you wish when you are filmed walking across the stage to receive your diploma and for taking your graduation photo.  Your assigned time, listed alphabetically by the first letter of your last name, is posted on South High School's website and the South High Facebook page.  When you arrive in the student parking lot, you will be directed where to park.  Please remain in your car, South High personnel will usher students into the building six at a time. (If walking or being dropped off, please wait at a safe distance from one another in the student parking lot.)

The filming process will take approximately 15 minutes.  Only graduating members of the Class of 2020 will be allowed in the building on May 5th.  There will be no congregating allowed in the parking lot, inside or outside of the school at any time during the day, and students will be expected to leave the campus promptly when finished.  If you ordered a cap and gown and did not pick it up last week, Jostens will have your cap and gown ready for student pick up at your scheduled time.   South High administration will have extra caps and gowns on hand for any student who needs them.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me directly at  Once again, Seniors, let's all be part of something memorable on Tuesday, May 5th for South High School's videotaping of the conferring of diplomas. Until then, stay safe and I look forward to seeing you next week.
