Senior Informational Meeting Notes

November 6, 2019



Cap and Gown and Class Ring: Information was sent home with Senior students on November 6, 2019.  If your student did not receive this information they may come pick up a packet in ASB. 


Cap and Gown Order Dates (the order  form is inside the packet):

  • Wednesday, November 13, 1st-6th period in front of building 3
  • You can order anytime online at

            If you order AFTER these dates, there will be a $20 late charge.


There are many Jostens graduation packages to choose from with a lot of extra items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, graduation announcements to mail out to friends and family, etc.  The order form highlights the extra packages which are awesome!  However, if you only want the necessities, please look on the very bottom of page 3 in the packet where it says:

26  “Option 1:  Keepsake Cap, Gown, Tassel & Stole - $55 +tax”

27  “Option 2:  Loaner Cap, Gown, Tassel & Stole - $55 +tax (security deposit)”


** Loaner means that you must return ALL items back to Jostens a day or two after graduation


IF YOU ARE BORROWING A GOWN from a former graduate - order must be given directly to Jostens on 11/13 - no online orders available for these items only, must be ordered through John Zavala: 28 Cap, Tassel, and Stole $45.95 +tax   or (if you have a cap) Tassel and Stole $30.95 +tax.  (At the end of the year these items cost at least $50-$75).


Once you decide what you want to order, make sure you fill out all of the information on the back of the order form, which is page 4.  If you only order necessities (cap, gown, tassel & stole), place that total on the Individual Items Product Total line (it’s not listed as a package). 


Caps, Gowns, Stoles and Tassels will be delivered to West High School and passed out a week prior to graduation.  We will be contacting those who do not order by December.  

Any questions, please contact Jostens at 805-987-4147 or email
