5/29/20 - Deadline to submit a video clip for our virtual graduation. NKHS Senior Students should have received an email  in their school email from a company named Marching Order or Stage Clip in the last few days.  Check your junk mail folder if you do not see it. The email will tell students how to log in, create your account and fill out your information for your SLIDE in the NKHS Virtual Graduation. Once the account information is done, click 'submit/save'. The next screen is the video clip information, and this is where you will get more information on the 10 second video clip and requirements (cap and gown required!). You must go through the account process in order to then submit your video clip.
 
Access your school email account by logging into   office.com  The login is your student number@nkschools.org     (example: 0925177@nkschools.org.)  Your password is the same password used to log into the computers at school.

6/4/20 - Virtual Senior Awards Night.  We are working to turn our traditional senior awards night into a virtual event and will be sending you details about what this will look like as we get closer to the date.  Please send in your information to Kelly Simkins at ksimkins@nkschools.org so we can make sure to honor and recognize all that you have accomplished.

6/8/20 - Senior Merge Photo Event from 1-3:30 PM. Olympic Photo Group (OPG) will be on hand to take a photo of each student individually in their cap and gown regalia. Each student’s individual photo will then be merged together with everyone else's and they will receive an 8x10 print of the Class of 2020 merge photo at diploma pickup in late June.

Students will sign up for a 5 minute block, 10 students per block. When they arrive, they will need to stay in their car in the student lot until a spot opens up for them to go wait in line at the Aux Gym. Ten students will be spaced out for social distancing reasons outside the entrance to the Aux Gym (between the gym and music rooms). One student at a time will be allowed into the Aux Gym to get their picture taken. When done, they will exit via the opposite side of the Gym, return to their cars and leave immediately.

Seniors will reserve their time slot using the link below. In summary, students must arrive in cap and gown and full regalia, they need to wait in their cars until they are told they can come up, and they need to leave immediately when done. Each student’s photo will be taken in front of a green screen so please do NOT wear green.

Please click here to sign up. If you have questions, please contact Senior Class Advisor, Nick Elmquist, at nelmquist@nkschools.org.

6/9 - 6/10 - Senior Finals

6/10/20 - Last Day of School for Seniors!


6/12/20 - Senior Slideshow at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. An annual tradition, the viewing of the Senior Slideshow officially marks the start of the NKHS graduation festivities! The slideshow is a mashup of photos and memories submitted by the students and families of the class of 2020. This year there will be two opportunities to view the slideshow virtually on our website and social media pages. Please join us on Friday, June 12th at 10:00 AM or 7:00 PM. Unfortunately we will not be able to keep the video posted on our website after the event, nor will the video be available to download.

Virtual Yearbook Signing.  
We are excited to announce that the North Kitsap High School yearbook signing tradition is alive and it’s fully digital to suit our socially distanced students! Jostens has created 'Yearbook Digital Signing Pages' that give every student in our school the chance to create virtual signing pages, invite their friends to leave messages, and print out the final product to keep with their yearbook as a permanent keepsake. This is free for every student whether they've purchased a yearbook or not. Seniors will be able to access these virtual yearbook pages beginning Friday morning - watch for the link! 

6/14/20 - Class of 2020 Virtual Graduation Ceremony, 7:00 PM.  Access our Virtual Graduation at northkitsap-hs.stageclip.com/

6/25/20 - Diploma and Senior Letter Pickup.  Diplomas are always presented at a later date, as they can’t be generated until seniors have completed their courses.  Back at the beginning of the year, we had earmarked June 25th for diploma pickup day.  Our hope is to turn this into a senior sendoff as well.  We’d like to ask that seniors come in their caps and gowns to take their pictures with their diplomas and officially turn their tassels.  This will need to be coordinated with social distancing in mind and we will provide details for this in the senior letter as well.
