Convocation | Class of 2022

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 @ 10:00 AM

Information for Seniors + Parents

  • Convocation is a formal ceremony and all seniors are glad to take this rite of passage.

  • Considering that seniors are wearing their graduation gowns to this ceremony, please be sure you have paid the $60 senior class fee so that your senior can obtain a cap, gown and tassel on October 7th during lunches.

  • For this event, seniors must be dressed appropriately. Every senior will wear their graduation gown (no cap). Every senior will wear dress clothing under the navy gown. (no cords/caps or tassels, etc). No tennis shoes/casual shoes/flip flops/jeans or t-shirts. Ties or bowties are acceptable.

  • Students will report to their 9:00 am Freeman Focus class and then report to Auditorium at 9:08 am when the bell rings.

  • Immediately following convocation, a traditional Senior Picture will be on the outside bleachers. Students will remain in their seat until instructed to proceed to the bleachers outside. There will be recessional out to the outside bleachers if there is no rain. If there is rain, there will be no processional, and seniors will take their pictures in the gym and be set up the bleachers.

  • Due to COVID 19 protocols and available space in our gym, this event will be live streamed to families via our YouTube channel. We apologize sincerely that we are not able to host all families for this event in our gym or at another location on our campus; we explored multiple options to make that a possibility but are unable to due to logistical obstacles.

  • Seniors traditionally have the rest of the day off after convocation. If a parent DOES NOT approve the early release of your senior, please email Dr. Rodriguez, the senior administrator nurodriguez@henrico.k12.va.us
