    GRADUATION: UPDATED INFORMATION

    Date: Class of 2020 Video/Virtual Commencement Ceremony - June 3, 2020

    Graduation: 

    The Class of 2020 is facing an unprecedented season of change due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), which has led to the modification of the spring schedule or cancellation of events/activities, 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. Our entire Collier County Public Schools family has an emotional investment in making sure our seniors are honored and celebrated.
     
    Class of 2020 Video/Virtual Commencement Ceremony - June 3, 2020
    A video/virtual graduation ceremony will be held for each high school on June 3, 2020, including each student’s name being announced, a photo of each graduate in cap and gown, and speeches by student leaders, school/District administrators, and School Board Members. Students, parents, extended family members, and guests will have the opportunity to remotely view the video streaming at their school's designated graduation time via the District and each high school's website. This allows for unlimited viewing! Below is the schedule for the Class of 2020 Video/Virtual Graduation. Further information regarding how to view the stream will be forthcoming. Seniors/parents will receive date/time details regarding cap and gown photos from their respective school.
     
    SCHEDULE: June 3, 2020 - Class of 2020 Video/Virtual Commencement

    Plan to Reunite and Celebrate the Class of 2020
    The act of walking across the graduation stage is unmistakably meaningful to all of us: students, families, school/District staff, and the community. Given the state of our country, we recognize traditional commencement ceremonies will not happen on June 3 as previously planned. Therefore, in an effort to reunite the Class of 2020, all high schools will host an event in July.
     
    July 24, 2020 at 8:00am (rain contingency on July 25, 2020 at 8:00am)
    Optional for students, as students will have officially graduated June 3, 2020.
    If guidelines from the CDC allow for a gathering of the entire senior class and parents/guests, each high school will hold a ceremony on a school’s athletic field. This event will allow students to walk across a stage and take a photo with the principal in order to honor the Class of 2020.
     
    If schools are unable to hold the July event, all high schools will host an event in December.
     
    December 2020 (or later depending on CDC guidelines)
    Optional for students, as students will have officially graduated June 3, 2020.
    If CDC guidelines do not allow for the July ceremonies, each high school will offer the opportunity for the entire Class of 2020 to reunite and celebrate in December (or later depending on CDC guidelines at that time). Think of this as the Class of 2020’s FIRST REUNION!
     

    CCPS will share further details using all of our communication methods as guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are updated.

    UPDATE - SENIOR YARD SIGNS
    We are excited to provide Class of 2020 yard signs to every senior in our District! Previously, we advised that these yard signs would be delivered to each senior's home; however, we have slightly changed those plans in order to ensure all of our seniors receive a sign. Seniors will pick up one (1) yard sign at their school at the same time they pick up their cap and gown. This date will be provided to seniors/parents by each school.
     
    We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility during these challenging times. The Class of 2020 will forever be remembered for resilience through these unique circumstances.

    CAP & GOWN

    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, we recognize traditional commencement ceremonies will not happen on May 29 as previously planned.    

    In the email you received  from the District, information was provided regarding plans for a Virtual Ceremony as well as plans for an in-person ceremony later this year.  To accomplish this, we will be completing the following activities as we prepare for the virtual ceremony.  This will also allow us to distribute items to you (Senior Yard Sign, Yearbook, etc.) and collect any items you have to return to the school (library books, sports equipment, etc.). Details for these events are provided below.  Some dates are tentative or still have to be set but that will come to you in additional communication in the next week(s).  

    Cap & Gown Distribution: Monday, May 4th from 9 am - 1 pm.     

    Senior Cap & Gown Pictures:  Friday, May 8th from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm.    Times for each graduate will be delivered during cap & gown pickup.

    Senior Speeches and Commencement Program:  Speech recordings and video of the Class of 2020 presentation will be Monday, May 11th for selected individuals.

    Diploma, Yearbook Pickup & Item drop-off:  TBA (we will announce this date(s) at a later time.)

    Seniors, please know that we understand this is not the graduation and recognition that you desire or deserve.  In these unique times, we are making an effort to provide a special and meaningful conclusion to your senior year and high school experience.  BC Nation has been thinking of you and understands how special you are to our school community. We will do everything we can to convey those sentiments in our modified end-of-year events.


    We will be distributing Cap & Gowns on Monday, May 4th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.  The distribution will be as follows:

    Last name A - D:  9:00am - 10:00am  

    Last name E - K:  10:00am - 11:00am

    Last name L - Q:  11:00am - 12:00pm

    Last name R - Z:  12:00pm - 1:00pm

    As part of the distribution, you will be taking care of other school-related items.  You will be responsible for paying all outstanding fees & fines to BCH and/or CCPS. You will drop-off any athletic gear (uniforms, equipment, etc.). You will pick up your Senior Yard Sign and then be issued your cap & gown for graduation.

    You will stay in your car during the visit to BCH. Below is a link to a map to help direct you to the drop-off and pickup locations. As you enter from Cougar Drive, you will proceed in front of the school through the car drop-off line.  The first stop (green spot) will be Fees & Fines payment location.  You can turn in old textbooks, media center books, pay for ID's, or any other misc items.   You will proceed to the next stop (Yellow spot) to drop-off any athletic gear and equipment.  You will place items in a bag, or bring your own garbage bag full with your name attached.  Your coaches will mark off all turned in items.

    The next stop (purple) is where you will pick up your Senior Yard Sign.  These are the signs made by the district for you to display in your yard or home window. The last stop (Barron Blue) is for Cap & Gown pickup. Representatives from Herff-Jones will be there to help distribute and verify your Cap & Gown are the right size.

    To help with this process, please print your last name in large lettering on a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and display it in the passenger window of your vehicle.

    Please make sure to have all items for drop-off with you.  Share this information with your fellow classmates to help with the efficiency of this process.

    Celebrate the YMCA’s Project Graduation, one of the nation's longest running, drug and alcohol-free celebrations. Project Graduation is a community tribute to graduating seniors from all Collier County public & private high schools. This is a great opportunity for you to help provide a safe environment for our youth to PARTY on a night they are entitled to celebrate!  

    The Greater Naples YMCA has hosted this event since 1985 which includes an all-night party (11 pm-4 am) free of drugs and alcohol. Our success each year depends solely on the support and generosity of high school parents, community leaders, businesses, law enforcement officials and graduating seniors.

     All-night long, students can participate in games and activities, a lavish food buffet, music, dancing, and more.  Tickets will be on sale at school this spring during all lunches.  For questions or more information, please contact Danielle Poff through email: aspiwave@aol.com
