Six things seniors need to know before the end of the school year

1. Transfer any files you wish to keep on your school google account to a personal account.

After the end of the school year, school email accounts will be terminated. This means any files on Google Drive under this email will be deleted as well. In order to save these files, you have to transfer ownership

  1. Click Share
  2. Click Advanced
  3. Share the document with a personal account
  4. Click on the pencil to the right of the account name. This will allow you to make the account the new owner

2. If you are in an AP Course, you can now opt out of taking the exam for that class without penalty.

This must be done by April 24, however. Speak to your teacher before doing so and email Mr. Clodfelter for more information.

3. If you are taking an ACP class, you can request a pass or fail grade (marked as an “S” for Satisfactory or “F” for Fail).

You must reach out to your teacher within 48 hours of receiving your final exam grade in order to do this.

4. Cap and gowns will be available to be picked up on April 22 from Jostens employees between 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Door 9.

They will also be collecting payments that were not previously collected. Drivers are instructed to drive through like a parent drop off line and stay within the car. Jostens and CGHS and CG Publications staff are still working on a way to safely distribute yearbooks once they arrive.

5. If taking an AP Exam, you need to change your College Board account to a personal email before your exam.

The College Board has announced that using your school email may cause problems and to avoid this risk you must switch to a personal email.

6. The school year ends on May 15, but it is possible quarantine will be extended.

When school is over, it’s important to continue following all CDC, WHO, and state health recommendations and regulations. This is the best way to ensure that we still get to have a senior summer and possible graduation. It is also our best shot at a normal start to our future paths, whether it be college, the work force, the armed forces or something else.
