Class of 2021 Survey RE: Graduation Ceremony (RESPONSE NEEDED)
Graduation is a significant milestone in the lives of students, and given the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for all of us this past year, the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 may be even more important for our seniors. The three comprehensive high schools in Vista Unified are currently planning for this year’s graduation ceremonies, and it is important for us to ensure the voice of our seniors and parents drive the decision-making process.
Recently, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released this guidance for commencement ceremonies, which is contingent upon which tier our county is in at the time. The Vista Unified high schools are considering plans for two commencement ceremony structures: a drive-through or a modified in-person ceremony.
We ask that seniors and parents complete the appropriate survey by April 18th to indicate preferences for graduation this year.

State Testing for 11th Grade Students
11th-grade students will test in their English or history class; those without an English or history class this term will be summoned to the gym to test on the designated testing dates.
Attention 11th Graders: Make Sure Your Device is Assessment Ready!
All juniors must complete state testing on a SCHOOL-ISSUED DEVICE (i.e., Chromebook); personal devices are not compatible with the required secure browser all CA schools must use for testing. Additionally, some Chromebooks in circulation are incompatible with state testing requirements. Please make every effort to exchange your device at the textbook window on campus at your earliest convenience; exchanges are available daily from 2:30-3:00pm. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
