Safe and Sane Dues Deadlines

CLASS OF 2021! ACT NOW AND PAY BY APRIL 15th . 

ALL SENIORS WHO HAVE PAID BY THEN WILL GET 5 EXTRA RAFFLE PRIZE TICKETS!  

More Chances to Win Great Prizes!

REMEMBER SAFE AND SANE WILL HAPPEN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER READ BELOW!

PRIZES INCLUDE ELECTRONICS, GIFT CARDS, TELEVISION, ALEXA for home and car, GIFT BASKETS, WIRELESS HEAD PHONES AND MUCH MUCH MORE! 

You have probably recognized a lot of fundraisers happening for Safe and Sane. We realize that some of you may not know what Safe and Sane means! Safe and Sane is the graduation party that follows commencement! Graduation night is statistically the highest for drinking and driving so this party is an overnight party held to deter this behavior!

Traditionally, this event is held at Adventure Park that runs from 11:00 pm until 4:30 am. All the amusements and games are free to the seniors!

This year looks very different so we are planning accordingly!

Plan A: everything is normal and we proceed with our contract with Adventure Park!

Plan B: if there are covid restrictions, we choose another venue and make it just as much fun!

Plan C: if we can’t get the Senior Class together for a celebration, we will refund all dues paid BUT continue with our raffle for those seniors who have paid dues offering great prizes like a television, air-pods, fire sticks etc! In addition, we will also give those seniors who paid dues a financial gift card to help them get off to a great start on their next adventure following graduation!

As you can imagine, it is very important for all seniors to pay their dues so we can plan to make it the best celebration ever! No matter which plan we need to follow!

Attached, please find the Class of 2021 Dues Letter (https://fcps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/Frederick/GetFile.aspx?DocId=14058)! All payments are due by April 15th. Please feel free to make payments up until that date!

We appreciate your support of our efforts! Our goal is to make this the best Senior celebration possible!

AND….get if you have an underclassman, get ahead on paying your dues! See the letters below:

Class of 2022: Class of 2022 Dues Letter (https://fcps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/Frederick/GetFile.aspx?DocId=14059)

Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony Update

Frederick County Public Schools is committed to doing all we can to honor the Class of 2021. We are looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2021 at outdoor commencement ceremonies in each of our high school’s home stadiums. Frederick County Virtual School, Heather Ridge, Rock Creek, and the SUCCESS Program are also planning ceremonies.

The graduation ceremony is an important culmination of each student’s academic career. It is an opportunity to celebrate our seniors and all of those who have supported their journey and success. We are pleased to be able to create a ceremony that affords our graduates their well-deserved celebration.

While FCPS would like to adhere to the published schedule of graduation dates and times for each school, our final communication of dates and times is forthcoming.

Dates and time will be dependent upon health and safety protocols in place and gathering size limits (currently 250) established by Governor Larry Hogan’s executive order. Additionally, it may be necessary to adjust graduation events and times to address potential weather concerns.

School planning teams look forward to receiving feedback from seniors and their families as they work to finalize plans. Please look for regular updates from your home high school and FCPS throughout the spring.
