  • The ceremony will be livestreamed by PUSD.
  • Graduates may start lining up at 12:00 pm.
  • It will be a short ceremony due to COVID restrictions.
  • You must exit The Rose Bowl immediately after the ceremony.

In a statement to the community, PUSD said:

"We are making every effort to make this important rite of passage as special as possible for 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 our students.

High school principals worked together to ensure that graduates are honored in safe, in-person ceremonies. Our goal is to ensure that:

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

            PUSD high schools will have specifics about schedules, tickets, and other information in the coming weeks."
