Although graduation is still months away, it is time to start planning now. We begin our preparations for this ceremony with the ordering of the cap, gown, and tassel that will be worn during the commencement exercises on June 29th.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5-6, 2019, a representative from the cap and gown company (Herff Jones) will be at William Floyd High School to measure seniors for their caps and gowns. Ordering will take place during lunch periods (9:01 am – 12:47 pm) in the senior food court. These are the only days that students can order. If your son or daughter is absent on these dates, please make arrangements with a classmate to place the order for him or her. It would be helpful if they are aware of your child’s height and weight.
Each student keeps his/her graduation package which includes the cap, gown and tassel.
The fee for this graduation package is $25 and must be paid for at the time the order is placed. The package will be distributed to graduating seniors at graduation rehearsal in June. Additional items can be purchased.
Payment must be made in cash or money order. Money orders must be made payable to: Herff Jones, Inc. ABSOLUTELY NO CHECKS will be accepted. No refunds will be given for any items ordered.
Since only those seniors wearing the appropriate cap and gown will be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony, we would appreciate your assistance in ensuring that your son or daughter orders on March 5th or 6th. Also, please encourage your child to make certain he/she satisfactorily completes all remaining academic graduation requirements. It would be unfortunate to lose eligibility for graduation during the final months of the year.
Please be advised that receipt of this letter does not guarantee your child’s participation in the graduation ceremony. Participation is contingent upon remaining in good standing throughout the year.
If you have any questions, please call 631-874-1177. Thank you for your cooperation.
