Cap & Gown packages
There are several Cap & Gown packages to choose from through Jostens. The basic Cap & Gown package
includes your choice of tassel as well as the school medallion. Families can arrange to borrow caps & gowns, through Jostens, at no cost or use sets from previous Mt. Carmel commencement ceremonies provided by an older sibling or friend. Please note that borrowed cap & gown does NOT include the tassel. You may purchase the tassel separately through Jostens.
Jostens online ordering ends in mid-April 2023, but we recommend ordering early as their pricing does change as the year progresses.

Information for Parents of Seniors who are turning 18 before June 9, 2023
When your student attains adult status at the age of 18 on his/her birthday, he/she is granted by law the right to sign all legal documents related to his/her education and to represent himself/herself in all educational matters. This includes school disciplinary matters, and participating in any serious legal processes such as IEPs or expulsions from school and excusing the student’s absences from school for the five allowable reasons to miss.
This also means that your student will be the sole person in your household receiving phone and email information from the school and school district as the adult contact. Important informational school communications will no longer go directly to parents/guardians.
If you and your 18-year-old would like to waive the 18 year-old rights and assign the parent/guardian decision-making authority, the waiver for doing so is listed on our 18-year-old rights page
for printing and signature. This signed waiver form should be turned in to the MCHS Administration building to either Nancy Hall or Cecilia Chavez.
Please read more detailed information about 18-year-old rights, rules and procedures and the waiver on our webpage: https://www.powayusd.com/en-US/Schools/HS/MCHS/STUDENTS/18-Year-Old-Rights
