    Senior Cap & Gown Pickup, Photos, and Student Item Drop Off 

    Dear Parents and Seniors,

                    The Class of 2020 is facing an unprecedented season of change due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), which has led to the modification or cancellation of the spring schedule, including many hallmark moments of the high school experience. We recognize graduation is the culmination of a student’s academic journey and a time to celebrate with family and friends. Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) also has an emotional investment in making sure our seniors are honored and celebrated. The act of walking across the graduation stage is unmistakably meaningful to all of us: students, their families, school and District staff, and the community. Given the state of our county and country, unfortunately traditional commencement ceremonies cannot happen on May 29 as previously planned.    

                    This year’s Virtual Graduation Ceremony will feature formal pictures of graduates in their regalia on June 3, 2020 at 7pm. In order for our seniors to pick up their cap and gowns and other graduation items to be used in our Virtual Graduation, we have set up the following schedule for students to come to the school. Seniors will also be able to drop off and pick up items during this time such as yearbooks or uniforms. Please read all parts of this document and follow all guidelines for picking up and returning items.
