Dear Class of 2020,
Congratulations seniors! We are so proud of you as you reach the end of your high school career, but we also share your disappointment that you didn’t have the same opportunities as every class before you to participate in end of the year activities, sports, and celebrations. In many ways, the school year feels as if it ended abruptly, and we owe it to you to recognize your accomplishments here at Cary-Grove High School.
Since I can’t see you in person, I wanted to share a video message with you all: https://safeYouTube.net/w/fDs8
Friday Night Lights Parade - Seniors & Their Families
We were overwhelmed with our Friday Night Lights turnout, and we enjoyed seeing so many of you driving by in your vehicles with your families. We plan to host another Friday Night Lights parade for seniors and their families to honor the Class of 2020 on Friday, May 15 at 6 p.m. We are asking participating seniors and their families to enter the parking lot at the First Street and Three Oaks intersection, drive along the stadium fence, and exit back onto Three Oaks at Elden Street.
Our district administration team and Board of Education are committed to honoring your achievements over the last four years. We will reschedule our graduation ceremony for Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at Cary-Grove High School. Please understand this ceremony will depend on guidelines from the Governor, CDC, and the Illinois Department of Public Health. Details about the graduation ceremony including arrival times and tickets will be shared by Monday, July 20. In the event that we cannot host a traditional graduation, we have also planned out an alternative option on this date that will allow for a formal reading of each graduate's name, the distribution of diplomas in person, and photograph opportunities with a photographer in each student’s cap and gown.
Cap & Gown Pick Up
For everyone’s health and safety, and to avoid interpersonal contact, we have developed the following schedule for seniors to pick up their graduation items on Monday May 11, 2020.
10 am - 11 am Last name A - F
11 am - 12 pm Last name G - K
12 pm - 1 pm Last name L - P
1 pm - 2 pm Last name R - Z
All cars will drive up to door 2 and display a piece of paper in the front passenger window with your first and last name on it. You will roll down your back passenger window so that your items can be placed in your car.
You will receive:
Cap and Gown
Yellow tassel if you have a GPA of 4.0 or higher
Cords for NHS students
Medal if you qualified for Cum Laude (information on this will be sent out soon)
Signing Day/Decision Day
Singing Day/Decision Day is always an exciting time to celebrate your next chapter. For any senior wishing to be featured in a Signing Day video, please complete the form that was emailed to you by May 1st. When the video is complete, it will be posted to our webpage and emailed to all seniors.
In lieu of an Honors Night ceremony, we will be creating an Honors Night video to recognize seniors that have earned various scholarships from school and community organizations. The video is planned to be released on our website on May 13.
Locker Clean-Out and Pick-Up of Belongings
Information regarding how seniors will be able to obtain the remainder of their belongings from the school will be communicated in the near future.
Senior Last Day of Attendance
The last day of senior attendance for remote learning is May 13, 2020. The deadline submitting assignments and projects is Monday, May 18, 2020.
We look forward to saying goodbye to the Class of 2020, honoring your accomplishments, and coming together to celebrate you. Remember that wherever life takes you, you will always be able to call Cary-Grove High School home.
