SENIOR ACTIVITIES FAQ:

Will our prom be rescheduled?

No. All activities scheduled for the remainder of the school year have been canceled

What about stuff that I left at McKay? How will I get it back?

Monday, May 11 has been booked from 8:00am-2:00pm for the following:

● Seniors will retrieve items from their lockers. Students will not be permitted to enter the building, but locker contents will be transferred to a labeled bag that will be available for curbside pick-up.
● Seniors may pay any outstanding fees.
● Seniors may return Chromebooks they borrowed but may no longer be using.
● Seniors may return any textbooks they may still have.
● Seniors may report any scholarship awards they have received so that we may collect that data for the class of 2020.
● Seniors may pick up any graduation merchandise that they ordered through Josten’s, including caps & gowns.

All of the above activities will follow appropriate social-distancing protocol for car & foot traffic

How can I make my payment to Josten’s for my graduation merchandise?

All seniors should attempt payment online before May 11.
Payments can be made at www.jostens.com, then make sure to enter McKay High School when prompted to do so.
Payment can also be mailed to Josten’s PO Box 2350 Clackamas, OR 97015.

What if I no longer want the merchandise that I ordered from Josten’s? How do I get a refund?

Josten’s typically will only refund students if they end up NOT graduating. If seniors have a specific issue or want to discuss a refund, they need to contact Josten’s directly using the contact information on the website.

How will seniors receive end-of-year honors & recognition?

Since we cannot have a Senior Awards Assembly, we will instead have a “Senior Celebration Week” from May 27-June 3. Videos will be posted on the website and on Scotsman Daily to recognize senior achievements.

Will we have a graduation ceremony on June 3rd, as previously scheduled?

We will NOT be having an in-person graduation ceremony on June 3rd.

We WILL be posting a virtual ceremony on that date, using information/photos received from graduates.

Will we have our 2020 graduation ceremony at a later time?

We have bookmarked the first week in August for a ‘live’ graduation ceremony. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to actually have an in-person ceremony, but we are hoping to be able to do that. If we can conduct an in-person ceremony, it is likely that it will look quite different with far fewer spectators. Stay tuned!

Oregon Promise Adds Flexibility to Eligibility

OSAC is allowing students who would have otherwise raised their cumulative, unweighted GPA to 2.50 or higher to be considered for Oregon Promise as a result of school district actions relative to local or state emergency orders.

This change is based on Governor Brown extending Executive Order No. 20-09 on April 8, 2020, which prohibits in-person classroom interactions for the remainder of the academic year.

The GPA requirement is still a cumulative, unweighted, 2.50 GPA. However, there will be flexibility provided for students who would have mathematically had the opportunity to raise their GPA to the 2.50 limit if letter grades were assigned for their final high school term.

  • High school registrars will use the GPA verification system and include the students where it would have been mathematically possible to raise their GPA to the 2.50 limit as MET.
  •  If a high school does not participate in GPA verification, the high school will need to include a cover letter when providing students with their final high school transcript to submit to OSAC. The cover letter must indicate that it would have been mathematically possible for the student to raise their GPA to the 2.50 limit if they earned letter grades for their final high school term.
  • For students where it would not have been possible to raise their cumulative, unweighted GPA to the 2.50 limit at the end of their senior year, those students need to continue to be verified as NOT MET.

Please encourage all interested students to apply for Oregon Promise by the appropriate deadline, and submit the 2020-21 FAFSA or ORSAA. More information can be found online at OregonPromise.org.
