Will seniors be able to graduate? (Updated 3/25/2020)
The VDOE has provided flexibility for the Class of 2020 to ensure high school seniors currently on track to earn a diploma this spring will be able to graduate. In the coming weeks, school counselors will use this information to review student transcripts and determine the remaining requirements each Senior will need to complete in order to graduate. Teachers will work with students to complete standards that need to be covered for the remainder of the semester. Communication regarding your child’s requirements will be sent via the ParentVue and StudentVue e-mail addresses on file.
What about graduation? (Updated 4/1/2020)
The disruption of a public health crisis in no way diminishes the hard work of our high school seniors. While we don’t yet know what form it will take, their years of hard work and achievements will be recognized at some point in the future. Until the public health crisis passes, we are unable to determine if or when traditional graduation ceremonies or other celebrations will occur.
Can students still order graduation regalia? (Updated 4/7/2020)
Seniors can still order caps and gowns through Balfour. Questions and concerns about orders should be sent via e-mail to or by calling (757)420-2233 Monday-Thursday. Balfour will be working with high school principals to identify alternative delivery options (i.e. drive-up pick-ups) as the delivery date nears.
What about school dances, such as ring dance, prom, or other social events? (Updated 4/1/2020)
Due to the Governor’s Stay At Home Order, all school dances and other social events have been cancelled for the remainder of the school year. Bookkeepers will automatically issue refunds to students who have already purchased tickets. Refund checks will be mailed to the student’s mailing address listed in ParentVUE.
