Senior Letter

March 20, 2019

Dear Senior Students and Parents:


The Class of 2019 brought distinction and spirit to Laguna Hills High School. They are deserving of special recognition as well as year-end-activities to celebrate their accomplishments.  It is a special time in the lives of the graduates and their families. With this in mind, it is extremely important for all graduates to remember that participating in Commencement Ceremony and receiving a diploma is a privilege, not a right.  Students are expected to act in an appropriate manner throughout senior activities including the commencement ceremony and PTSA Grad Nite.


Discipline Consequences related to Senior Activities and Commencement Ceremonies

Senior pranks are a violation of SVUSD Board Policy. Engaging in disruptive behavior during the weeks/days prior to Commencement may cause a student to be excluded from Senior Activities and possibly excluded from the Commencement Ceremony itself. Disruptive behavior would include but is not limited to being on campus during non-school hours, weekends, or overnight with the intention to plan, or participate in a senior prank. senior pranks may seem harmless but can cause significant damage to facilities, impact to staff and disruption to the school day. Students may be held liable for the financial cost associated with a prank and will receive consequences deemed appropriate by school administration. I encourage anyone who is aware of such plans to please inform the school and don’t allow your senior student to participate. Students attempting to disrupt the integrity and grace of the Commencement Ceremony will be removed from the ceremony immediately.  


Suspensions and Expulsions

Be advised that the Saddleback Valley Unified School District has a strict policy against the use or possession of drugs, alcohol, and weapons, and any other expellable offenses. Please note that if a student commits ANY expellable offense they will be prohibited from attending and participating in Prom, ALL senior activities, which include the Commencement Ceremony and PTSA Grad Night.  Any student committing a suspendable offense within the last 45 days of school WILL NOT have the opportunity to earn back 45 days by completing the BIC Class and therefore will be excluded from Prom, senior activities and may be excluded from the commencement ceremony.


Demerit Recovery and Graduation

In order to participate in senior activities and the commencement ceremony all senior students must have resolved all discipline consequences related to detentions and Saturday Schools. Each hour of discipline consequences equals 1 demerit. Any senior student with demerits on their record must serve all assigned hours until their demerits equal ZERO (0) before they will be allowed to attend Prom, participate in any senior activities or commencement ceremony. A schedule of assigned hours of discipline consequences along with the intended days to serve must be arranged with the Discipline Office immediately. No exceptions will be made.


Attendance Contracts and Senior Activities / Commencement Ceremonies

If a senior student fails an Attendance Contract resulting in LOSS of PRIVILEGES in the second semester of the school year, they will be excluded from Prom, senior activities and commencement. There will be no opportunity to recover the privileges related to Prom, however, if a student serves consequences and demerits equal 0 prior to June 7, students can earn the privilege of senior activities and commencement. Prior to any student experiencing loss of privileges, each student has signed multiple contracts notifying them of each tardy, unexcused absence or truancy milestone.

Mr. Chadwick 

LHHS Assistant Principal
