Senior Send Off – May 19/20
Last Day of eLearning – May 15
Seniors will be assigned a time based on their last name. This information will be released in next week’s 20Alert communication. Once seniors have checked in all materials and paid any outstanding fees/fines, they will receive a packet with graduation details, an official transcript, caps/gowns & graduation regalia, academic awards/cords/medals/pins, yearbooks (if ordered), and some special senior-only gifts!
Yearbook Distribution: We will have a drive-by curb-stop pickup at the school during Senior Send Off and underclassmen check-out described above. Watch the 20Alert and other DCCHS Thunder outlets for more details regarding Senior Send Off and underclassmen check-out.
The following are ways to help this process run smoothly:
Before the event, double check that you have purchased a yearbook. Email DCCHSYearbookstaff@gmail.com if you are unsure.
If you want to purchase one now, please go to JOSTENSYEARBOOK.COM and PURCHASE ONLINE prior to the event. The online purchasing is open through May 15th. This will help limit contact and money handling. ADDED BONUS: You can save an extra $5.00 by purchasing this way!
The day of pickup, please have a photo ID or student ID that clearly displays the name of the person for whom the yearbook is purchased ready to show.
If you are purchasing a yearbook at the curb-side event, please have EXACT CHANGE or a check made out to DCHS Yearbook. The cost for a yearbook day-of is $85.00.
As mentioned previously, Academy District 20 is hoping to host an in-person graduation at an outdoor location the week of June 20-26th. More information will be released as it is available. We are working hard to re-imagine how we hold our traditional Senior celebrations and move them to a virtual platform. Sadly, some of the traditional Senior events, like prom, the Senior luncheon, and the Senior assembly, are canceled. We have a few great ideas for presenting our 2020 Senior Awards, a special social media campaign, and a special surprise for all of our Seniors at the end of the year. We know that not being able to participate in these events in the traditional manner is disappointing and we are dedicated to celebrating this culminating event for students and families!
Here are our initial plans for celebrating the class of 2020:
We are ordering a yard sign for each of our Seniors to be put in their yards/ on doors.
Each graduating Senior will receive a special commemorative face mask :)
We are working on a social media campaign to celebrate each Senior
Each Senior will receive a special gift when they checkout with their graduation regalia.
We will host a virtual 2020 Senior Awards celebration (details to come)
Staff Virtual Farewell for Class of 2020- Each staff member will have an opportunity to record a special message for the class of 2020. This will be released the week of Senior Send Off
