Graduation Information

Senior Information Form

Graduation is Friday, Jun. 4, 2021. This is a very exciting year for you and your families.

Please fill out the online senior information form by Nov. 20, 2020. This form will give us the information we need to order the graduation caps, gowns and announcements. You will also be able to submit your baby/child photo for the senior slideshow (see below for more details).

Graduation Packages

FSDB places graduation package orders at the end of November, so seniors must submit payments by Friday, Nov. 20, 2020. There are two packages to choose from; the basic package is $41.50 and the full package is $78.70. Both packages include the graduation cap, gown and tassel set, and a medallion with red, white and blue ribbon. The full package includes 25 graduation announcements and 25 name cards. Additional items are available for purchase.

Senior Baby/Child Photos

A video slideshow of all seniors will be shown during graduation. This video will include your baby/child photo along with your senior portrait. You can upload a digital copy when you submit the online graduation information form or you can email it to your school's yearbook teacher (see important contacts below). If you have a hard copy of the photo, please have your child hand-deliver it to their school's yearbook teacher.

Senior Portraits

Senior portraits are taken in-house by our Communications and Public Relations department. You will be able to access your senior’s school portrait through an online gallery, later this fall. The official school photography website ( allows seniors and families to view, download and purchase photos easily. Each senior will have their own personal gallery, which can only be accessed by having a specific gallery ID number. Your student’s gallery ID number is their school lunch PIN. Once the photos have been taken, you can access them as follows:

  1. Go to

  2. Click on “FIND YOUR PHOTOS”

  3. In the “Enter your Gallery ID:” enter senior 5-digit number (same as school lunch PIN number)


If you do not know your 5-digit number, please contact your school’s administrative assistant. In addition, if you participate on an athletic team, a school performance or special event, those photos will be uploaded to your personal gallery too.


If you have questions or seek more information about photos, please contact Michael Johnson, Web/Media Communications Manager, via email at

Class Rings

Class ring catalogs will be given out to the seniors this year. It is unlikely there will be an onsite class ring meeting, but rings can be ordered online and we will connect you with vendor representatives by telephone or email at a later date.
