Senior InformationTop of Page

Senior year is fun, bittersweet and also a bit hectic. Make sure you celebrate all you've achieved and create lasting memories of your last year at Woodside High School.

The purpose of this area is to provide information to students and parents that pertains to Seniors.

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.

Seniors can go online to fill out a form to reserve their cap and gown here,  WHS cap and gown

CLASS OF 2017- Senior Portraits

Woodside works with Prestige Portraits to have seniors take their portraits which are used in the school yearbook. There is a small sitting fee as well as a deposit that is required. 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 afterschool 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 is December 1, 2016. The last day to select a senior portrait will be December 16, 2016. Please note that the company does shut down during the winter break.

Seniors can contact Prestige directly.
