Senior Check out Process

 

Seniors--in order to officially "check out" and be cleared for graduation and to receive your diploma, you must complete the senior check out process.  This includes returning anything that has been checked out to you by the school such as uniforms, athletic equipment, textbooks, library books, Chromebooks & internet hot spots, and any other items.  This also includes reconciling any debts you may owe.  Please email Mrs. Woody in the Finance Office (anne_woody@kernhigh.org) to check for any senior debts in advance.  Senior Checkout starts next week on campus during the dates and times listed below. Please click here to review the Senior Check out document before you arrive on campus.  You will start the check out process at the Student Activity Building (SAB) and clearance forms like the one shown on the document will be available in the SAB starting Tuesday, June 1st. 

 

Yearbook distribution will also happen during your senior check out process and if you purchased a yearbook in advance, you will be able to pick it up from the SAB at that time.  Any extra yearbooks will be available for purchase on site for $90, cash only, until sold out.  We will also have Senior Yard Signs available in the SAB if you would like to purchase for $20 each, cash only.
