Senior Fees Update

We know this is a trying time for everyone, but we feel extra compassion for our seniors and their families. 

We have looked at the senior fees and determined that regardless of whichever graduation option is selected, there are still items that our seniors will get to help them celebrate this milestone in their lives. 

Below are the items that all seniors have already or will receive. 

  • 2019-2020 Yearbook
  • Diploma Cover
  • Graduation Announcements
  • Class of 2020 T-Shirt (If they haven’t already picked it up)
  • Class of 2020 Custom Bag (including other graduation memorabilia)

All seniors will also receive their cap and gown and those qualifying to graduate will receive their diploma.  If your student hasn’t already received their t-shirt, we will provide it when the other items are distributed. At this time, we don’t know when any distributions will be, however, as soon as we know, we will communicate that to you. 

 

The cost per student of the items is $115.  Many people have already paid the $180 that would have covered all costs related to graduation.  There were other items that would have cost additional money, like the senior breakfast, which are no longer going to be incurred. 

 

Therefore, we are offering $65 refunds to students who paid the $180.  That refund will be sent to the address in our computer system and will be made out to the student. 

 

Those students who haven’t paid their fees yet will still need to pay the $115 to cover the costs of the items.  Those who paid the partial payment of $90 will need to pay the remaining $25 to cover the costs of the items.  We will be opening up the online payment system with 2 payment options, one for $25 and one for $115.  Please ensure that the online payment is made by May 8th

 

If you would like to donate the $65 refund to be used to help support other seniors who have already identified as being in financial need, we would love for you to contact either Nan Hunter at nhunter@apsk12.org or Meredith Kaltman at makaltman@apsk12.org to let us know you would like to donate your $65 refund.

 

We thank you for your patience as we navigate this process.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Ms. Hunter.
