Cap and GownTop of Page

The Sequoia Union High School District is providing the graduation attire (cap, gown and tassel) to comply with AB1575 stating that graduation is an integral part of the educational experience and therefore must be provided without cost to the student. The district will be purchasing the cap, gown, and tassel, which will then be checked out to seniors who are participating in the graduation ceremony.

Students will have to return ONLY the gown following the ceremony in order to receive the diploma.

All students will reserve a graduation unit (cap, gown and tassel) at NO COST!

Please complete the online form at Woodside 2019 or at bit.ly/Woodside19 to reserve the graduation unit. 

Please note that caps are NOT allowed to be decorated.

The deposit is returned when students return their proofs. Students are not required to purchase the photos, though most like to do so.

Woodside High School does have the opportunity for a limited number of students to have their picture taken on campus after school on a date to be determined. Please note it will be on a first come first serve basis. It is asked that students who have transportation and means to take their senior portrait work directly with Prestige Portraits.

The last day to take a senior portrait to have it in the school yearbook is December 1, 2018. The last day to select a senior portrait will be December 14, 2018.
