Diplomas Update for Graduating Seniors

Seniors, we would like to offer you the option to receive your diploma ahead of the graduation ceremony, if you prefer. If you prefer to wait until the graduation ceremony to receive your diploma, that is an option as well. We will have them ready for you at the graduation ceremony.

Update: Southside High School phones are still down. If you'd still like to pick up your diploma this week, stop by SHS between 8am-3pm, no appointment needed.

Southside High School offices will reopen Tuesday, July 7. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Diplomas will be available for pick-up beginning Monday, July 6 through Friday, July 10, from 8 AM to 3 PM at your high school (Southside will reopen Tuesday, July 7). We ask that you call the school office ahead of time to allow the staff ample time to locate your diploma and have it ready for you to pick up. Please bring a picture form of ID with you when you pick up (student ID, driver’s license). When you pick up your diploma, please practice social distancing and wear a mask in accordance with the CDC guidance. Please also be mindful of ongoing construction at both campuses.

We prefer to distribute diplomas directly to the graduating senior. If the senior is not available to pick up the diploma, please call the school office to make other arrangements. 

After Friday, July 10, remaining diplomas will be held for the graduation ceremony. If a senior is unable to pick up the diploma during the week of July 6 - July 10, please call the school office to make other arrangements.

Diploma pick-up is optional. If you prefer to receive your diploma at the graduation ceremony, you do not need to pick up your diploma ahead of time. We will ensure that each and every graduating senior receives their diploma.
