Seniors who are placed on a behavior contract for drugs, alcohol, or weapons will not be able to walk at graduation if the offense occurs after April 3rd. An offense that occurs before that date will require the student to follow the guidelines in the behavior contract to “earn- back” the ability to walk in the graduation ceremony.
Seniors Donʼt Get Caught Up In a Senior Prank: If a student is caught being involved in a senior prank, consequences can include; no awards night, no prom, no senior outing, no grad tickets, no walking at graduation, no grad nite! And a very expensive bill to clean or repair the campus.
