These are the important dates for seniors and their parents to know in order to prepare for graduation from VMHS. Please note: ALL distribution and individual senior appointments MUST adhere to social distancing and public health guidelines. Masks are required and students will be distanced at least 6 feet apart. Only graduating students will be allowed on campus. In some instances, like the grad video and photo opportunity, up to two parents/guardian may accompany student. Exceptions WILL NOT be made for anyone else other than 1-2 parents/guardians. This will be communicated and posted throughout the campus. Follow scheduled time below.

May 7                    Distribution of caps & gowns for students who purchased by the May 3rd deadline

Parents and students were sent an email confirmation regarding May 7 pickup. See below for your scheduled time.


May 12                 Cap & Gown Late Purchase and Borrowing Deadline

Purchase and borrowing of caps and gowns must be completed using the attached Jostens order form. It is also possible using this form to purchase only the cap and tassel and borrow a gown for the grad video and photo op. Students who have not purchased or borrowed by May 12 are not able to participate in the grad video and photo opportunity. These caps and gowns will be delivered on the 5/19 and 5/20 grad photo op days (see below).

Graduating seniors will:
