Seniors
  • Welcome to the Class of 2020 info page

grad capsClass of 2020 - We know this is not what you expected for your Senior year. We are here for you. We are working each day to find ways to celebrate you and all you have accomplished. 
  •  
  • Diploma Pick Up
  • Graduates will be able to pick up their diplomas in the main office from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm staring on Monday, June 15th. Please note, you must have all fines paid and your laptop turned in to pick up a diploma.


Credits and Courses
a.  If your student was on track to graduate prior to the closure, please make sure you are keeping up with your current classes. As long as you are in constant communication with your teachers and completing assignments you will not have to worry about your graduation being affected as a result of the school closure.

b.  If your student was not on track to graduate (or if you are unsure), please reach out to your student's counselor (information below). It is imperative that you are in the know of exactly what your student needs to do in order to be able to graduate. If your student is enrolled in credit retrieval (i.e. Edgenuity) they should be working on those courses every day until they are complete. Tests have been unlocked so that students can continue to progress as necessary. If you have any questions about your student’s progress, please contact the following individuals:
 - If your student is in the 3rd period Credit Retrieval Class please contact Mr. Swanson (SwansoEP@puyallup.k12.wa.us)
 - If your student is not in the 3rd period class, but has been assigned Credit Retrieval classes please contact Ms. Buxton (buxtorl@puyallup.k12.wa.us)

College Admissions
Your best source of information is the admissions office for the college or university that you plan on attending.

In terms of Washington Colleges, here is the latest joint communication that has come out:

April 9th (Considerations for Fall 2020)

March 30th (Point of contact for all Four-Year College and Universities in Washington)

Seniors – will you need an official transcript sent to your college or university at the end of this school year? If so, please complete the information on this form by Friday, June 19th: https://bit.ly/3bFr14I

Financial Aid
1. FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid): It is not too late to submit your FAFSA form. If you have any questions about the FAFSA or need help filling it out, this would be a great time to reach out to your counselor via the new online booking system.

2. The Washington State Achievement Council has developed a financial aid chatbot (Otter) designed to help seniors navigate financial aid. Learn more about it HERE.

Senior Yard Signs
As a way to celebrate the class of 2020, ERHS staff delivered signs to all seniors living in the ER attendance area. If you are attending ER on an intra-district or out-of-district waiver or if you didn't have a sign delivered please come by the front office (between 8-2) to pick up your sign. 

Senior Activities
Graduation - Graduation ceremonies were held on Wednesday, June 3rd and Thursday, June 4th. It was so great to see our graduates and their families! The district is compiling a video that will include the traditional aspects of the graduation ceremony and feature each student walking across the stage. During the week of June 15th the video will be uploaded and available for all to see. Congrats Class of 2020!

Prom - This event, unfortunately, has been cancelled at all of our high schools.

Decision Day - The Class of 2020 has a bright future ahead! Congratulations to all our 2020 graduates!
