Class of 2019
As your student approaches their senior year of high school, it is pertinent that we provide you with the best information regarding what to expect this coming school year. As of this writing, graduation dates, times and venues are still being decided on by the district. Once they have been set, we will publish this information. Guidelines regarding graduation requirements for your student are available with their respective guidance counselor and with the school’s graduation coach.

The student’s name and ID Number must be printed in the memo section. When payments are being accepted, students will be prompted to complete an informational form. This form will collect the student’s measurements for the cap and gown, t-shirt size, sweatshirt size, and other information the school will need pertaining to end-of-year activities. Please read the FAQ section regarding senior package fees.
Senior Package FAQ
Must every senior purchase the senior package?No, however, purchasing the senior package will assure that the senior will have all of the items listed and not placed on a waiting list.
Is October 2018 the only time when senior packages will be sold?Yes. In the spring, only Grad Bash tickets will be sold in February 2019 for $160. All other items will have to be purchased separately.
Can I order a cap and gown directly from Herff Jones? No. Students who do not purchase the senior package from the school WILL purchase their cap and gown rental directly from Herff Jones in May 2019. The price is $75 (CASH ONLY). There is no order form to purchase the cap and gown from Herff Jones online for Lee High School.
What about graduation announcements and senior pictures?We have 2 independent contractors that sell these items to our students. Herff Jones will have a student presentation regarding announcements in the Fall (usually November). Senior pictures must be scheduled through Leonard’s. Again, these items are NOT included in the senior package.
What if my student does NOT want all of the items in the package? Unfortunately, seniors are not able to pick and choose what items they would like to purchase. It is a complete package that is being purchased. Students who do not purchase the package are able to purchase all the items separately - at higher prices and provided that items are available to be purchased (several items will probably have waiting lists). The package is NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERRABLE. If a student transfers to another school, withdraws, receives notification that he/she will not graduate, or does not attend any event that is paid for with the senior package, they WILL NOT be able to receive a refund. This rule will be adhered to strictly.
Must the senior package be paid in its entirety?Can separate payments be made? No. Payments must be made in their entirety. The full price of $400 can be made in cash, by cashier’s check or money order. All cashier’s checks and money orders must be made payable to Robert E Lee High School. In the memo section the student’s name and ID Number should be printed. NO PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED!!
When in October are seniors able to purchase the package?October 1st, 5th, 8th, 12th, 15th, 19th*, 22nd, 26th, 29th, 30th and 31st. Payments WILL NOT be taken after October 31, 2018. Locations will be announced at a later date. (October 19th – Teacher Planning Day)
When can students expect to receive their items?Barring any shipping and/or weather issues, the following timeline can be expected:
Sweatshirt - November/December 2018
T-Shirt –March/April 2019
Prom Ticket - April/May 2019 (whenever prom is scheduled)
Grad Bash Ticket – April 2019
