Grad day information from principal powell

This letter was also emailed to all seniors and their parents.

How & when do I get my graduation tickets?

How?

1.  Complete the Google form/Google Classroom assignment sent to you by your counselor.  Your tickets cannot be assigned until that form is submitted.

2.. Turn in textbooks/library materials/District-owned tech devices that were borrowed.  Your account must be cleared for tickets to be assigned.

 

If you have outstanding library books, late fines, etc., the student and parent have received email notice from the Library Office.  Because only bar codes and amount due can be shared via email, you may contact Library Media Coordinator Shirah McDonald for clarification.  This also includes district or site-issued Chromebooks, chargers, hotspots, and graphing calculators that were loaned to you.

The Google classroom assignment from your counselor will capture your final transcript request and the names of household members using your graduation tickets, and direct you to complete your SRVUSD Senior Graduation Survey in Naviance.

The Google classroom assignment/Google form sent to you by your counselor must be completed, including the names of persons who will use your graduation ceremony tickets, before your tickets will be released to you.

 

When?

They will be available for pick-up during the last week of school, Tuesday - Thursday, June 1-3, after you have completed your check-out requirements.  This gives you adequate time to make sure all your check-out requirements are cleared.  Your must present your ID to collect your tickets.  Only you or your parent may pick up tickets for your household.

Textbook turn-in continues

 Textbook turn-in continues during the week of May 24-27 for seniors, juniors, and sophomores.  Textbooks will be accepted in The Commons according to this schedule:

  • Monday, May 24:  1:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Live Graduation ceremonies - Friday, June 4

Graduation will be held in two, live, in-person outdoor ceremonies on Friday, June 4 in the stadium: 

  • Graduation Ceremony #1 - Friday, June 4th @ 10:30 am
  • Graduation Ceremony #2 - Friday, June 4th @ 6:00 pm

Seniors were emailed (through their school Google email account) a registration form* on Thursday, April 22 at 8:00 am.

Seniors must use their school email account to record their choice of graduation ceremony they will attend (or not attend at all) and to request household tickets. Because there is a maximum of 410 graduate seats for each ceremony, when 410 seats have been chosen for a ceremony time, that ceremony will no longer be offered.  Should the limiter not work and more than 410 sign-ups occur, we will revert to timestamped responses as to who signed up first for seating assignments.

Tickets are required for entry and are limited to 4 per graduating senior so that we can maintain county-mandated outdoor seating guidelines; those tickets will distributed to seniors when they complete senior check-out during the last week of school.  Each graduate's family (ticket recipients) are expected to sit together in a designated pod. Six feet of distance and masks are required a tall times during the ceremonies. Both graduation ceremonies will be video live-streamed.

*All students must complete this form. This will be a final submission; changing graduation ceremonies and ticket numbers may not be accommodated.

How & when do I get my graduation tickets?

How?

There are 2 separate parts to Senior check-out this year:  textbook/library/fines clearance and an online Google Classroom assignment from your counselor. 

If you have outstanding library books, late fines, etc., the student and parent have received email notice from the Library Office.  Because only bar codes and amount due can be shared via email, you may contact Library Media Coordinator Shirah McDonald for clarification.  This also includes district or site-issued Chromebooks, chargers, hotspots, and graphing calculators that were loaned to you.

transferring your school data to a personal account

In order for gradating students to keep access to all the hard work and projects you’ve created at school, you must download and/or transfer any data you wish to keep to a personal account. This must be done before the last day of school to ensure you will continue to have access to your files and projects after you leave. On the day after Graduation, or otherwise exiting our District, you will no longer have access to these files, including email, Google Drive, Adobe and Microsoft online projects and files. Please see below for the tools available to you to assist with migrating your data you wish to keep after you leave. 

For Google Drive and Gmail : Use Google Takeout Transfer - You will need to have a personal google (non-students.srvusd.net or srvusd.net account) to transfer files to before you begin. To transfer your gmail and Drive files you will want to go to https://takeout.google.com/transfer . This will transfer a copy of your files, originals will still be in your school account. 

If you have other Google content (other than what is in Drive and Gmail), to download and import into a personal google account, go to https://takeout.google.com and select the items you wish to download from your school account. This site will not automatically transfer your files so you will need to be prepared to import these other files types into your personal account. You can save the files to a USB or locally on a personal computer for import later, however, it does not have to be done at the same time as the download. 

Here is a great Video to help Guide you through the Google Data Transfer/Download process https://youtu.be/iBXet3by4SU

For Adobe Creative Cloud Projects and Items: With Adobe’s Student Asset Migration site, you can easily transfer your Adobe Creative Cloud content and projects from a school account (students.srvusd.net) to a personal Adobe Account. If you don't already have a free, personal, Adobe account, you will need to create one before you begin the migration process. Using the Migration tool will allow you to have ongoing access to your files and projects you’ve worked so hard creating. These items might include, Adobe Photoshop Images, Illustrator graphics, Spark Pages, Portfolio websites, or Behance Profiles. 

To start the migration process for Adobe Creative Cloud  go to Graduation.adobe.com. Please note once the migration process is complete it cannot be undone. This moves the files from your school account to your personal, files will no longer be accessible in your school account after Migration. 

Here is more information about using Adobe’s Student Asset Migration tool https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/admin-guide.html/enterprise/using/migrate-student-assets.ug.html.

For Microsoft OneDrive Files (Office Online Files, and other files you may be backing up to OneDrive): Microsoft, now partnered with Mover allows you to move/transfer your school OneDrive files to a personal OneDrive/Microsoft account. To start transferring your files, you must first have created a personal Microsoft account. Once you create or if you already have a personal Microsoft Account you can go to https://app.mover.io/login?next=/transfer/new choose “Sign in with MIcrosoft”.

Here is some additional information about using the Microsoft Mover program to move your files https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/move-your-school-files-when-you-graduate-7dbda93c-71e6-483f-8914-ad445554cd31

last call for senior ads in 2021 yearbook

LAST CALL FOR SENIOR ADS – DEADLINE IS MAY 16

Senior ads of sizes  page, ¼ page, and ½ page are available for purchase through the DVHS webstore through May 16. We have already extended the deadline and are extending the early order discount, so order soon if you wish to place an ad in the yearbook. Please note, the May 16 deadline is for both ordering senior ads AND submitting ad content (the images and message text for the ads).

It is important we receive the high-resolution jpg images and the message text for your ad right away in order to get it into the yearbook. Any ad for which we do not have the images and text by May 16 will unfortunately not make it into the yearbook, and refunds will be issued to those who do not get their content submitted by the deadline.

Directions for submitting your senior ad images are as follows:

1)       take a look at prior yearbooks to get a good idea of how much content fits in a senior ad of the size you have purchased

2)       select the high resolution images you wish to appear in your senior ad (if you send them to us in their original resolution, that is usually the best)

3)       go to www.hjeshare.com and enter the DVHS school ID of 12540, and then you will be able to upload up to ten images at a time. Please only upload the images you know you want to appear in the ad.

4)       For simplicity, you can email the message text for your senior ad to Mr. Silverman, the yearbook advisor, at jsilverman@srvusd.net. Be sure to indicate your student’s name so it is clear in which ad your message text is to appear. You can also include your preferences, if any, regarding which image(s) are most important and should be emphasized (larger) or grouped near each other in your ad layout. This is helpful information and tends to reduce the need for revisions.

5)       as soon as the yearbook staff has created your senior ad, we will email (to the email address you entered when submitting the order) you a proof for your review and acceptance. If it gets too close to our print deadline, we will not have time for review and changes, so please submit content to us at your earliest convenience so you will get a proof to review. There is currently a backlog of senior ads, so please be patient, even if you ordered your senior ad earlier in the school year.
