Class of 2021 (Graduation) School Update (04-14-2021)

Good morning, last night the Board of Education approved funding for all high schools in San Diego Unified School District to hold their senior graduations at Petco Park. I think UCHS was given a very favorable day and time slot for this big day. Graduations are being held from 7:30 am to 6 pm on June 10th through June 14th.  UCHS’s day will be Saturday, June 12th, at 3 pm. 

I am extremely happy about the day and time slot we were given. Each senior will be given four guest seats to attend the ceremony.  Each seat will be assigned for family members and guests. In other words, there will not be open seating, families and friends will sit in the assigned seats.  This will allow Petco Park staff a way to determine what seats need to be cleaned for the next set of graduation guests.

The ceremony will last 90 minutes maximum.  Seniors and families cannot be late as they will close the gates. Petco Park will open the gates at 2 pm.  We must leave Petco Park once the ceremony is over. My guess is that many will make their way over to the bay to take pictures.  All families will have to find their own way to and from Petco Park and pay any parking fees associated with parking downtown. 

The event will be live streamed for family members at home and around the country.  The jumbo screen will also be used to show each senior.  I will provide more details as we get closer to the event but I wanted to get this out so families could plan for making sure they are in town and off work to attend.  I am so excited about this news as we know for sure our seniors, the Class of 2021, will be able to be together for this important day.  I will update all as we seek guidance as to other senior activities (prom, senior movie, senior dinner, etc.) based on what public health guidelines will permit.   

As many of you know, we started this journey four years ago. We are now eight or more weeks away.  UC- U-know!  Clap it up!!!
