Students are to wear the provided cap and gown along with the school tassel. Under the gown students should dress in appropriate attire (dress shirt with a tie, blouse, dress pants, dress shoes, dress, skirt, etc.). No student will be permitted to wear shorts, flip-flops, denim, or T-shirts. Students should wear flat soled shoes (wedges and sandals are ok). Do not wear shoes with stilettos or thin high heels due to the difficulty of walking on the field.  As you choose your clothes, remember that it can get hot on the field. There should be no exterior decorations, i.e., signs, messages on caps, candy leis, noisemakers, scarves and balloons.  Floral and cultural leis are acceptable. Every graduate is checked prior to entering the field.  Make sure that your gown is presentable and not wrinkled.

PARKING     There will be limited parking available. People are encouraged to carpool. People may have to park off campus. Please plan accordingly. 

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!

Students will be receiving packets in their English class with information about ordering announcements. Within those packets is a small green and white card labeled CONTACT FORM. Students are asked to complete the card and return it to D7.
