GRADUATION INFORMATION

BCHS Senior Checkout for the Class of 2020

Dear Class of 2020 student & family,

To make the senior checkout process smooth, safe, and easy to follow, please read this communication and review the attached map carefully prior to Senior Checkout.

Senior Checkout is required for all seniors to ensure you have cleared all debts and have all your necessary items for graduation.  Please make sure you plan for adequate time to get through all five stations; we have over 300 students to checkout per day, so it may take some time.  This is a drive-through process, so also be prepared to be in line in your car during the process.  I also recommend you bring water as it may be hot. 

SENIOR CHECKOUT DATES/TIMES:

  • Seniors with last names A-K will attend between 8am and 12pm on Tuesday, May 19th, 2020
  • Seniors with last names L-Z will attend between 8am and 12pm on Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

We do ask you to follow the last name alpha schedule to keep the level of service equitable between days. 

SOCIAL DISTANCING:

This entire route and process will be in support of social distancing.  Students/parents will remain in their vehicle.  BCHS staff will use gloves while taking or giving items.  Please read here on further social distancing guidelines: https://www.dvusd.org/Page/67553

PRIOR TO ATTENDING SENIOR CHECKOUT:

  • Log in to https://payments.dvusd.org and pay any debts other than physical items that must be returned during checkout (iPad, textbooks, etc.). Email Kang@dvusd.org if you have questions about debts.
  • Order a yearbook if you want one. The deadline to order is May 17thhttps://www.jostens.com/yearbooks/high-school-yearbooks.html
  • Pick up student items on 5/15 from 8-11am or 1-3pm at BCHS (drive-through in drop off lane to end of 100 hall). Please bring your ID for pick up.  You can also drop of athletic uniforms or band instruments at this time/place so you are not given additional student debt.
  • Gather all items that need to return to BCHS.
    • iPad
    • iPad brick
    • iPad case
    • Textbooks
    • Athletic uniforms or band instruments (if you didn’t return them on 5/15)
    • Elevator key
    • Other items not listed

SENIOR CHECKOUT PROCESS/STATIONS:

STATION 1- ITEM RETURN:

  • Show your student ID.
  • Be prepared to turn in you checkout items to staff as listed above. If you do not have items, you will need to pay the debt for the items that are not returned. 

STATION 2- BOOKSTORE/ STUDENT DEBT CLEARANCE:

  • Show your student ID.
  • We will review your student debt status with you and if all is returned/paid, if you are cleared you will head to station 3.
  • If your debt is not cleared, you will need to follow directions from staff and pull off into the blue section on the map to pay your debt online from your vehicle at https://payments.dvusd.org or follow other provided directions. If you have items at your home, you will need to carefully follow the blue arrows on the map and return home to retrieve the items to continue the checkout process.  In both cases, you will need to restart checkout from station 1 again.   Please pay your debts and secure all items to be returned prior to senior checkout to avoid this problem.

STATION 3- YEARBOOK DISTRIBUTION:

  • Show your student ID.
  • Pick up a yearbook if you ordered one.
  • If you did not order a yearbook, let staff know you did not order a book. Please do not leave this station and attempt to go around to the next one.

STATION 4- JOSTENS CAP & GOWN PICK UP:

  • Show your student ID.
  • Jostens staff will provide your ordered cap & gown.
  • If you have not ordered your cap and gown yet, please notify the staff and they will provide you directions on how to do that during this time. Please make sure you bring a form of payment to make a purchase during senior checkout.

STATION 5- SENIOR PACKET PICK UP/CEREMONY ATTENDANCE VERIFICATION:

  • Show your student ID.
  • You will pick up your senior packet. Your packet may include:
    • Diploma (for all graduating seniors)
    • Graduation cords or stoles earned at BCHS
    • Medical records from the nurse’s office
    • Non-prescription medication stored in the nurse’s office (Prescription meds will need to be picked up in coordination with the nurse’s office. Nurse Irene will be contacting families.)
  • We will ask if you are attending the July 2nd graduation ceremony at the State Farm Stadium (12pm).
    • If yes, we will mark you as attending. You will receive your diploma cover at the stadium on July 2nd.  Ceremony ticket distribution will occur at a later date (2 per graduate).  More information on this will be coming.
    • If no, we will not have a seat for you at the ceremony. You will also receive your diploma cover.  Please know if you state you are not attending, we will not plan on you being at the stadium on ceremony day.

And that’s checkout!  We are hoping for a smooth, safe process! Please see the map of the checkout process (below on a PDF version or attached to the email version of this message).

See you on May 19th or 20th!
