SWAHS Graduation Information

Principal's Message

Dear Graduate Families:
It is with mixed emotions that I am writing you to discuss details of the South Washington Alternative High School Graduation Ceremony. Due to the restrictions related to COVID 19 we will be unable to deliver an on - site graduation ceremony for the class of 2020. Instead we are taking a similar structure of past ceremonies and presenting it in a virtual format.  

We understand that this is difficult news to hear, but the SWAHS staff pride themselves on creating personal connections with students and this ceremony will honor that connection. We wanted to make you aware of several events connected to this memorable day. 
On June 4th graduating seniors are asked to pick up their graduation materials and drop off any district issued items. On June 9th we will have a photographer available to take a graduation picture of your student, as well as staff on hand to help assist them with their handprints. The day will culminate in the SWAHS Graduation Ceremony and recognition of your student’s achievement.
We want you to know that we’re thinking about your students often, we’re cheering for them as they near the finish line, and we’re excited about what the future has in store for them. Lastly, we wanted to thank the families  for their support of their seniors. In this challenging time that support has made a world of difference in helping the senior in your life get across the finish line. Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do!  

Nick Falde 
Principal, South Washington Alternative High School
