Graduation/Senior Information

For information concerning graduation and Senior activities, please visit the following link. More details >>  

Senior Materials Collection & Final Plan Forms
Seniors will need to return all borrowed materials including textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms & equipment prior to commencement. Additionally, in order to receive their cap and gown they will need to complete their “Senior Final Plans Survey” and submit it to their guidance counselor.

Seniors do not need to return their Chromebooks.  ICTS will disconnect them from the CPS network after graduation. Students who do not want to keep their Chromebook can return it when they pick up their cap and gown so that it can support other students and/or be properly recycled. 

Yearbooks will be provided at no cost to seniors. Distribution details will be provided later this spring.
