June 4, 2021 PUSD Class of 2021 Commencement Ceremonies at the Rose Bowl


    Class of 2021 Graduates at the Pasadena Rose Bowl!

    The PUSD team is delighted to announce that the Class of 2021 graduations will be held in person, with safety measures in place, at two combined ceremonies June 4, 2021 at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.

    We are making every effort to make this important rite of passage as special as possible for this year’s graduates while adhering to COVID-19 safety measures.  During the pandemic, we learned how important it is to come together as one community to support and celebrate each other.

    High school principals worked together to ensure that this year’s graduates were honored in safe, in-person ceremonies. Our goal is to ensure that: 

    Every graduate has an opportunity to receive their diploma in-person
    Parents/guardians can be present. Each graduate may invite up to four guests, who must be from the same household 
    Safety measures are in place, such as wearing masks, physical spacing, and advance registration

    Schools will have specifics about tickets and other information in the coming weeks. 

    Promotion ceremonies for middle and elementary school students are being planned as car parades. Please check with your school for dates and times. 

     Times TBA
