As a reminder to parents, staff and the community, high schools in the Tustin Unified School District are holding virtual graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020.
Due to the executive order from Governor Newsom regarding prohibiting social activities and community gatherings in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, parents and students of the Class of 2020 were informed last month that high school graduation ceremonies would not be held in person.
“Though Tustin Unified was looking forward to celebrating its 2020 graduates in person, we must put the health and safety of students, staff and parents first,” TUSD Superintendent Dr. Gregory Franklin said. “The COVID-19 cases in Orange County have dramatically spiked since the District made the announcement five months ago to have traditional graduation ceremonies in August. TUSD had hoped by postponing the original May date, COVID-19 would be reduced by August and the District could continue with in-person plans. Unfortunately, the surge made that impossible.”
“As Tustin Unified’s high schools plan the virtual ceremonies, their goal is to create a memorable experience that captures the recognition and genuine admiration and respect the District feels for its students,” Franklin said. “TUSD knows it won’t be the same as an in-person event, but we will do our very best to deliver an outstanding program to honor the members of the Class of 2020.”
Graduates, their families and friends will be able to view each of the virtual graduation ceremonies during a livestream on the dates and times listed below. More details on the livestreams have been sent to parents from their school. Information will also be posted on the high school websites. If someone misses the livestream, the videos will be available online.
The schedule for the virtual high school graduation ceremonies is as follows (note – Tustin Connect has moved its ceremony from August 4 to August 6):
Tuesday, August 4 – Tustin Adult School at 6 p.m.
Wednesday, August 5 – Foothill and Beckman at 6 p.m.
Thursday, August 6 – Tustin High and Tustin Connect at 6 p.m.
Tustin Unified is encouraging students to wear their graduation regalia while viewing the virtual ceremony so they can take part in long-standing traditions such as being invited by their principal or student leader to move their tassels and toss their caps.
TUSD Board of Education Members Tammie Bullard and James Laird will congratulate the Class of 2020 from each high school in taped messages on behalf of the District.
