Please contact your Assistant Principal if you are unable to pick up your Cap & Gown at your assigned time and we will make other arrangements.
Students will have an opportunity to individually walk across the stage and pick up their diploma in a series of 3-hour events (2 each day) scheduled by House in a series of “drive-up” graduation events at the Dilboy Stadium parking lot over the course of two days. Graduating students and family members will be invited to Dilboy on either June 10th or June 11th, 2020. Over the course of a 3-hour period, each graduate will individually walk across the stage, receive their diploma, and have their photo taken.

Please note, students will be assigned staggered times to report at thirty minute intervals. The assigned times to report will be provided to each student at a later date. IMPORTANT: Students must report during their scheduled time only. Graduates arriving by car must enter the parking lot entrance on the Medford side of the stadium. Graduates and their family members must arrive in one car, must remain in their car, and will be directed on how to proceed to the staging area. Graduates arriving on foot will line up at socially responsible distances along the walkway on the Medford side of the stadium. Graduates should arrive at Dilboy wearing their Cap & Gown and ready to have their photo taken.
Congratulate Our Graduates!
We invite community members and families to make posters/signs to put in windows or yards (or use chalk on your driveways or sidewalks) to congratulate our 2020 graduates. Feel free to start putting up signs as soon as you like, and share on social media. Thank you for helping celebrate this important milestone for our students.
