Important Information for Graduating Seniors
 
This is an exciting and very busy time of year for seniors so we wanted to email you with a few reminders as we head toward graduation. 
 
Please make sure you have:
1) Paid off all debts/outstanding balances to the Cafeteria. Check with the main office to see what you owe. Checks should be payable to DRRHS.
 
2) Paid $17 to DRRHS to Mrs. Dias in Main office for Cap and Gown (only if you didn't pay your class dues).Again, if you pulled your class dues in full, you do not need to purchase a cap and gown.
 
3) Returned all textbooks by the end of your final exam or paid for any textbooks lost. 
 
4) Met all of your graduation responsibilities with regards to academics. Please check with teachers and guidance counselors to make sure you have met all graduation requirements.
 
**The first 3 things are necessary to pick up cap and gown at the second graduation rehearsal on Monday 6/2. You will NOT be allowed to pick up your cap and gown unless your debts have been paid.**
 
Please make sure you have saved these mandatory dates:
