Option for Refund and Refund Form
Hello Senior Families,
April 30, 2020 - The Senior Parents Group has initiated a refund window for May 1-15, so that families who wish to receive a refund for their grad night ticket may do so. If County guidelines ease this summer, we plan to host a live senior event with the targeted date of August 1st. Grad Night ticket money will help fund this event.
As is the tradition, the celebration in August will include a large-scale raffle. Raffle items include prices such as bikes, TV's, electric scooters, iPads, AirPod’s, gift cards etc. If we are unable to host a live event, we will still have a virtual raffle. Only those students who have purchased the Grad Night Ticket will be eligible to participate.
If you choose to request a refund at this time your student will no longer be eligible to participate in the targeted Aug 1st live event or the alternate virtual raffle. At this time, we do not have plans to offer tickets for sale at a later date.
Please click on the button below to complete the attached form so that we know which option you are selecting - you may complete the form either way!

Drive-Through Diploma Pick-Up and Pictures - Tuesday, June 2nd to Thursday, June 4th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm
AVHS Administration has created an optional plan for seniors to receive their diploma and take a professional picture in a staging area. The detailed plan for Drive-Through Diploma Pick-up and Pictures, the dates and times for seniors to receive their diploma has been sent via email from AVHS Administration. Seniors are required to arrive according to schedule, as the plan and procedure is created in order to respect social distancing protocols, minimize traffic, and allow for the safe retrieval of students diploma. Please note that if you do not wish to participate in the optional photo opportunity, there is no need to come to campus. The school administration will mail the diploma to students' homes.
Senior Celebration Event! - Targeted for August 1st
Since Grad Night and the (post-Senior Ball) After Hours events are both canceled, we are seeking to provide some kind of alternate celebration later this summer. Such an event will be highly dependent on county social distancing regulations at that time. And therefore, we would negotiate late cancellations for all vendor contracts.
Our target date is August 1st (the same date that we might have a live graduation ceremony). This event would be local, likely outdoors, and would seek to include elements of the senior ball, after-hours, and grad night.
Mark the date on your calendars and let’s stay optimistic that we can make this celebration happen for our Seniors!
Stay tuned for more information.
