Picking Up Pre-Purchased Items

Seniors who have already purchased cap, gown and/or tassel through Jostens, will pick up in front of the school (main loop). Seniors who are eligible and have paid for honor cord(s) will receive them at that same time.

Need to Purchase Items While Picking Up

Seniors who have NOT PURCHASED cap, gown and/or tassel through Jostens, will need to go to the auxiliary gym exterior doors on the north side of Westlake (where football tickets are purchased) to buy items needed for graduation.

Other Information

  • Please adhere to the day and time that corresponds to senior last name.
  • ALL seniors will have a live picture taken for the virtual graduation and must be in graduation attire. (Cap, gown, 2020 tassel, and stole–navy cap & gown for boys, light blue cap & gown for girls). Cords and medals (if applicable) should also be worn. LEI’S cannot be worn when pictures are taken. Caps cannot be decorated in any way and should be worn level on the head, parallel to the ground, not on the back of the head. Tassels should be worn on the right side of the cap.
  • Each senior will receive a packet that includes: Senior Information for the month of May, a personalized card that has the senior name, specific date and time for grad pictures (place card on car dash for the appointment), and a map to help you know where to go for picture days.
  • All cars will need to enter Thunder Blvd. via 400 north. WE MUST KEEP THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC ORGANIZED TO ACCOMMODATE ALL 775 SENIORS.
  • Honor cords can be pre-purchased through May 5th at 3pm. After this time, honor cords will need to be purchased when picking up cap and gown; on the east side of the school (east “A” hall doors). To ensure efficient distribution days, pre-purchase is strongly encouraged.

Grad Video Pictures & Diploma Handout

  • Each senior will arrive 10 minutes early from their scheduled time, in their cap & gown, for their picture appointment–the scheduled time is printed on the card that was given at cap and gown pick up. Immediate family may accompany their senior (one car only).
  • A card of each senior’s specific day and time was given in the packet that was picked up during cap and gown distribution days. Please place this on the dash of your car when coming to this appointment. All cars will need to enter Thunder Blvd. via 400 north.  WE MUST KEEP THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC ORGANIZED TO ACCOMMODATE ALL 775 SENIORS.  Faculty/staff members and signs will assist in directing where to go as you get closer to the school.
  • Diplomas will be handed out
  • Stoles will be returned and candle will be given to senior (for Senior Dinner Dance) when exiting
  • Yearbooks will be picked up (pre-purchased) when exiting
  • Picture opportunities include large blow-up Thor in back courtyard, large hammer (used at graduations), Mighty Thunder flag, and lighted “W”. The picture in front of the large hammer will be professionally taken and will be a free download if chosen to do so.
  • Please be patient–this process could take up to 40 minutes to complete. Parents and seniors will need to stay in their car until a staff member allows them to enter the school. We ask that you stay to the allotted time you were given.  If you come early, you will still have to wait until your scheduled time. If you miss your time, you will not be able to make it up–we will use your yearbook picture on the virtual graduation video.
