Virtual Graduation Appointments and Procedures
Attention ACHS Seniors and Parent/Guardians:
You will need to follow the BEFORE GRADUATION instructions to sign-up for your appointment.  Then review the DAY OF GRADUATION instructions to be prepared for the ceremony.

BEFORE GRADUATION:
Please use the following link to sign up for your virtual graduation appointment. Instructions are also included. Virtual appointments are May 18-20 from 10:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. If you're having any issues, plase email Dustin Fore at dustin.fore@anderson.kyschools.us. Click this link to confirm your graduation times.

DAY OF GRADUATION:
* Students will need to wear cap, gown, and any cords, collars, or medals that they have earned from ACHS.
* Up to four parent/guardians may come with the students. (The Health Department stipulates that no grandparents may attend unless they are the legal guardians.) 
* Show up at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
* Park in the Student Parking Lot (A) near the auditorium and report to one of the staff members in the parking lot that you are present. A diagram is included by clicking on the heading above.
* Staff members will then direct you to the holding areas as we move the procession of students and their guests throughout the process.
* When you exit your vehicle, the student and parents/guardians will need to be wearing PPE, including a face covering, and follow the directions of staff.
* Once you arrive inside, you may remove your PPE for pictures.  The senior will walk across the stage and pick up his/her diploma from a stand, hold it up and pose for a picture with Superintendent Mitchell and Principal Glass.  Mr. Glass will then have the student turn his/her tassel, face the camera and toss cap in the air for a second picture. Then the student will return to guests and exit out of the side auditorium door. 

** Students who will be speaking as part of the ceremony will be called to set-up a separate recording time.  Students should be appropriately dressed in caps, gowns, and accessories for this part of the ceremony as well.

On May 30, at 3:00 p.m. the ACHS Virtual Graduation Ceremony will be ready for viewing by students and their families from home.  More specific information about access and copies will follow.  Please continue to check back to ACHS website and Facebook for all senior activities and end of the year details.

Bearcat Seniors,

Final Transcripts Information
Your school email address will only be available for a month or so after you graduate so you will need to change your email address you have used on Parchment.com.  I have attached a link below to show you how to change your email address you currently have (typically it is your ACHS email) to a personal email so that you can get into your Parchment account after graduation.  

Also, I wanted to make you aware that you can use Parchment.com for free until August 1, 2020.  After that, you can still use Parchment but they will be charging you a fee.  

If you haven't ordered your final transcript yet, I have attached a guide to help you through the process.

COVID-19 Safety Pledge

During this time of transition, school safety has morphed into safety in other environments. The COVID -19 Safety Pledge includes safety steps for students whether they are at home, grandma's or elsewhere. Our precious students need to think smart and know the healthy practices that will keep them safe and others. Our schools and students across Kentucky have participated and supported our Ky Safe Schools Week Pledges in the past. Now we bring you a COVID-19 Safety Pledge for school, home or anywhere. #TogetherKY #TeamKentucky

 
Virtual Yearbook 2020

Froggy Country and Passport Radio have created an online Virtual Yearbook 2020 where we can celebrate graduate's achievements, share stories and accomplishments and wrap it all up in a platform that can be shared anywhere and saved forever. The

Virtual Yearbook 2020 is a fully immersive experience, including video, audio, photo and graphics capabilities. 

When completed, anyone can access it for free through any of our radio station platforms including websites, apps and social media channels. We will promote this project heavily on the air on all of our stations. It will be like what you would expect from a yearbook, but in an e-book, interactive format.

Students, parents, educators, and coaches can upload content and we will format it into a special recognition for the class of 2020. Please remember content must be school appropriate [not containing any explicit content].

You can upload materials to virtualyearbook2020.com

Thank you for your help in the development of this special project. Our goal is to create a unique memory for this class of 2020 to enjoy and lift the spirits of everyone in the community.
