Another problem solved - THANK YOU, GOD!:
Found out Sarah's graduation cap & gown cost will be waived due to financial need status. * One less thing to cry about. *
But then this comes in:
Dear Parents of the Class of 2012,
As you know by now, the Class of 2012 will graduate on Monday, May 21, 2012, at 7:00 pm, at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The next few months will speed by faster than you can imagine. Believe it or not, there are a few items that need to be taken care of soon, deadlines are not far away.
Q. Does my student have to purchase a cap and gown from Jostens?
A. Yes, they are the designated vendor we use for caps and gowns.
Q. My sibling graduated from HRHS. Can I wear the same gown?
A. Yes, if it fits, by all means wear it. Seniors will need to buy a tassle and cap from Jostens. Souvenir tassles (with the bling) are not allowed to be worn with the cap and gown.
Q. Do I have to buy graduation announcements through Jostens?
A. No, feel free to design your own.
Q. Does HRHS issue tickets for graduation?
A. No, Red Rocks seats 9,000 people. We do not need to limit seating. HRHS provides special shuttles for guests who are not abled bodied and need assistance getting into the amphitheatre. Details about special needs transportation and seating will be published on the HRHS website in mid-April.
Please feel free to call me if you have specific questions about graduation. I will be placing more information on the website in the near future.
As if I could not be more depressed today... I emailed the school letting them know we do not have financial resources to cover graduation costs... feel bad that Sarah had to sit through an entire assembly going through stuff she can't have. Feeling like a major loser.
