Also, remember that due to Governor Roy Cooper’s legislation that we can only allow each graduate to have four guests each. The graduation dress code is for dark slacks and dark shoes for men, also a collared shirt will look nicer under your gown. For ladies, a dress that does not flow below your gown. Please do not decorate your cap or gown.  We look forward to seeing everyone at graduation.

Seniors, I am excited to let you know that cap and gown delivery has been approved. Our delivery date will be May 4th from 2-7 pm at our school in the student drop-off line in front of the school. Please see our website and social media for the breakdown of times for each part of the alphabet. If you cannot make it to this pick-up event there will be additional times provided later in May. Please note all social distancing rules will apply during this delivery event.

Josten’s representatives will be on hand to deliver all items ordered before April 6th , 2020. If you have not paid for your items you will need to pay with a money order or in cash with the exact change. To streamline our process, please have that exact change in an envelope with your student’s name on it. If you are unsure if you ordered or of your amount owed, please call 1-800-JOSTENS and verify to avoid duplicate orders. They can also help you with any questions you may have regarding Jostens products.

For any senior who has not ordered his/her Cap and Gown please do so as soon as possible so you have a cap and gown for our graduation event. Details regarding the event will be forthcoming from the district.
You can order your cap and gown online at Jostens.com and enter your school name and your information. You can also call 1-800-JOSTENS and order and pay over the phone although call times will be long due to smaller staff on hand.

Additionally, all seniors will be receiving a yard sign from CCS and those can be picked up during cap and gown distribution

We are excited to get your items to you and look forward to seeing you from a safe distance!

We hope that you and your family are doing well. We will be communicating more with you now that central services will be stepping back from notifications. Here are some important pieces of information:

  • Our office staff will be answering the school phone between 10:00 and 2:00 if you need to contact us.
  • We are not sure when we will return to school. We cannot allow students into the building until Governor Cooper allows us to.
  • Seniors were told before spring break that their grade as of March 13 determined whether they had passed or failed that course this semester. If you were failing on that date, you have until May 22 to bring that grade to a passing grade. However, our expectation is that all students will continue with their online courses and complete assignments.
  • At this time for underclassmen, grading procedures have not been determined.
  • Our central services staff is working on a plan to distribute graduation materials, yearbooks, and any other items students need. They are also making plans to schedule a time for students to return textbooks, JROTC uniforms, athletic uniforms and equipment, and laptops that were checked
    out.
  • Central services will provide information on how and when graduation will be
    held.
  • Students who have not registered for classes for next year should email your
    guidance counselor immediately.
  • As we receive information and updates from our central services staff, we will let
    you know immediately. You can also check our Jack Britt website for updates.

 

Have a super Buccaneer day.
Please stay safe and stay healthy.
