    When will the last day of school for seniors be this year?

    Seniors' last day was Friday, May 8.


    How do you plan to honor seniors on their original graduation dates?

    Recognizing the importance of our originally scheduled dates on May 12-18, NKC Schools developed a plan to honor the Class of 2020 during those times. More information is available here. Students had the opportunity to take a cap and gown photo in front of their school, pick up a yard sign to take home and be featured on social media. Those same evenings, lights were turned on to illuminate our football field in recognition of our graduates, spotlighting this important school celebration. 


    How can I watch the virtual graduation ceremonies? 

    NKC Schools live-streamed each graduation ceremony on our YouTube channel. Further details, dates and links for each high school's program are available here. If you missed the original showing, the graduation ceremonies have been archived on this website and on YouTube for future viewing. 


    I wasn't able to pick up my cap and gown order. 

    Seniors who were not able to pick up their order during the scheduled pick up times should contact their school to make alternate arrangements.


    My family has ordered class rings, announcements, or other celebratory items.

    For all graduation items other than cap and gown orders, please contact Jostens directly for further arrangements. 


    My family has ordered a school yearbook. How can I pick it up?

    Please contact your student's school directly to learn more about arrangements for yearbooks.


    When will seniors be able to turn in their laptop and other district technology devices?

    Please check with your student's school directly for details on technology turn-in plans.


    My student will not be able to attend the events in July to receive their diploma. How can I pick it up?

    Please contact your student's school directly to make alternate arrangements to pick up their diploma.


    How will seniors be graded for the spring semester? Is spring testing cancelled?

    NKC Schools has developed an FAQ to provide more information on grading and assessment during this time. More information on e-Learning expectations can also be found here. Any additional questions will be best answered by your student's high school. 


    I have an additional question.
