Graduation 2019 Letter

Approved Cords & Stoles

It has come to our attention that the time printed on the graduation announcements is incorrect. It reads 2:00 when the correct time is 1:00. Upon researching the matter, it was determined that Jostens printed the information correctly as it was provided to them. Originally, the time for graduation was 2:00, but was adjusted by JCS to afford sufficient time between the ceremonies for Jefferson HS and Washington HS. The information was submitted to Jostens in November, as their plant goes to print in January. The adjusted time was not confirmed until January. 

Jostens has graciously offered to print small cards indicating the time correction to insert into the graduation announcement mailing. These inserts will be provided to students commensurate with the number of announcements they purchased at no additional cost. The anticipated ship date for the inserts is April 25th. 

Our apologies for any inconvenience this matter has caused. Please reference the graduation letter at the link above for details regarding graduation and related activities.
