Graduation Update: Tickets & Capacity

We wanted to give you an important update regarding our commencement ceremony on May 27. Thank you for the feedback regarding your intention to attend an in-person ceremony as we work closely with our district and the Department of Health (Click HERE for the CDPH Guidelines). Currently, LA County is in the Orange Tier, which allows us a 33% capacity limitation in our stadium. The 33% capacity limitation will allow us to give each graduate (3) three free tickets. In the upcoming week, our Senior class will receive a Google Form to input the three names they wish attend our commencement ceremony.


On a positive note, there is a possibility that LA County could move to the Yellow Tier by May 27. If this happens, we would allow each graduate to purchase two additional tickets. This could possibly give each Senior five tickets for graduation. We will also have a live stream option for families and guests that are unable to attend in-person.


Please remember the following Orange Tier Guidelines when choosing your three tickets:

  • Immediate household only will be allowed.
  • Individuals must be spaced 6 ft. apart (unless from the same household).
  • The maximum capacity of the venue that we can use is 33%.
  • Everyone must wear masks (except when speaking on stage).
  • Individuals must complete a health screen.


Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work to make this the best experience for you and your graduate in a safe environment.


We will continue to send updates as new information comes in. Less than a month to go! We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

WebGrants 4 Seniors

SENIORS, your GPA has been uploaded to the California Student Aid Commission for Cal Grant Verification. You can create an account on https://mygrantinfo.csac.ca.gov/ to view your status.

ATTENDANCE COUNTS!

Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not on camera at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.

If your student is having difficulty logging in, please contact your teacher immediately, and remember to clear their attendance by the end of the day.

All single-period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.

We are so happy to see all of our students online and learning. They are working hard and making us proud. Keep up the great work!
