    Covid-19 Update
    The Covid-19 community levels in Ramsey County are currently medium. If the rate moves to high, SPPS may require students to wear masks. If that happens, students will have to wear masks at graduation. The social distancing part will not return, however. 
    Students who test positive for Covid-19 will have to isolate for 5 days. Unvaccinated students with a household member who has Covid-19 will also have to quarantine for 5 days. If graduation falls within the 5 days window, students will be unable to participate at graduation. For more information, click here to see the SPPS Covid-19 Student & Family Guidelines.

    Students must find their own transportation to rehearsal and arrive by 9:45 AM. Rehearsal should only last about one and a half hours. If you miss the rehearsal, you will NOT walk at graduation. This is not a dressed rehearsal, so please dress comfortably, and do NOT bring your cap and gown.

    Yard Signs

    The district has provided all Seniors with a Senior "Class of 2022" school-themed yard sign. If you were unable to pick up a yard sign during distribution in late April and still want one, please email either Ms. Otto or Mr. Yang to make arrangements for one. 


    iPad Return and other items

    Seniors are also expected to return their iPad, charging block, and cord by Thursday, June 2nd, if they are done with their classwork. If they still have classwork to complete, they must turn it in on Monday, June 6th at rehearsal. 
    If you have library books at home, please return them to school. If you have any other items that belong to Washington (sports equipment, uniforms, classroom item, etc.), please return those as well.

    Cap and Gown Pickup

    Cap and gown distribution will happen on Friday, June 3rd. Tickets to the venue will also be handed out at this time, along with any applicable cords or school stoles (not to be confused with cultural adornments/ stoles, those are the responsibility of the student and family).

    Senior Picnic

    All Seniors who are on track to graduate will be bussed to Central Park in Roseville for a Senior picnic celebration on Friday, June 3rd. Seniors not on track to graduate will stay behind to complete the necessary work needed to graduate on time. 

    If you have any questions, please contact lucy.otto@spps.org or seeyee.yang@spps.org.
