Diploma Pickup 2020

🎓 Dear Seniors, Class of 2020 🎓

The time has come and your diplomas are ready for pick up!  Congratulations!

Please read the entirety of this email carefully and let me know if you have questions!

If you were unable to pick up your diploma this week, we have two options for you! Please see below!

 

OPTION 1:

Diploma pick up is happening over the course of two days so that we can shorten wait times and be safe and socially distanced. You can come either day.

 

Wednesday, October 21st between 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Thursday, October 22nd between 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

 

WHAT DO I BRING?

  1. Your photo ID (you cannot pick up a diploma without it- this can be ANY photo ID, not just your school iD)

  2. A pen to sign your diploma pick up form

  3. Any school property that you still may have (textbooks, iPads, ChromeBooks, etc.)

WHERE?

Students will line up, socially-distanced (6 feet apart) outside the HSES entrance.  

 

HOW?

A staff member will bring students in to the lobby one by one.  You will complete your diploma receipt form, show your ID, and receive your diploma inside an envelope.  

If you still need to get personal belongings from your locker, this can be arranged while you are at school.

 

WHAT IF I CAN’T COME ON THOSE DAYS?

If you cannot pick up your diploma on your assigned day, your parent or guardian that is your custodial guardian (as documented on your Blue Card and ATS) can pick up your diploma for you.  They must also follow the health and safety protocol and present a valid form of ID to receive the diploma. Parents must also sign the diploma receipt form on your behalf when picking-up the diploma.

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS

HSES is committed to following NYCDOE and DOH Health and Safety protocols.  No students or parents/guardians will be admitted into the building or provided with a diploma if they are not wearing a mask.  Students and parents/guardians must wear a mask and practice social distancing while in line.  

 

OPTION 2

 

             If you moved out of New York, or you are not available next week AND your parent or guardian cannot come pick up your diploma: Complete this form to have your diploma mailed.
