HJUHSD COVID-19 Response and Information

    ***Gradation Plan Update***

    After careful consideration, we have decided to allow two cars per graduate, if needed, to make things easier for families. However, this will mean that in order for the processional to take place in a timely fashion, only the graduate will be allowed to walk up to receive their diploma and take their graduation photo. Family members cannot be in the graduate photo which also makes the photo more consistent with traditional graduation. The total number of guests between the two vehicles, including the graduate, is still nine. It is the responsibility of the attendees to ensure both cars enter the processional together. No accommodations will be made in the line if both vehicles are not together. Any student who chooses not to participate in the graduation processional will have their diploma mailed to their home. Again, more detailed instructions and specific guidance for your school will be coming from your principal.

    Dear HJUHSD Seniors and Senior parents. Now that we are less than 30 days away from our first school graduation, we are forced to make some final decisions as to what graduation will look like. As you all know from our previous communications, we have already invested in and started our graduation videos for each school and delivered our Senior Yard Signs to all seniors. We did these things to be ready for whatever may come, but have always maintained hope that they would be in addition to a physical graduation as social distancing guidelines eased. We are now faced with the harsh reality that despite our hopes, a traditional graduation as we have known for years, is not going to happen. We also know that despite best intentions, suggestions, and plans for a postponed graduation later in the summer or fall, that this idea is also not realistic. The released state stages for reopening CA, has an event like graduation in Stage 4. The governor explained last week that the state will not even enter Stage 3 for months, which means that Stage 4 could be well into very late fall or winter. As leaders of this school district, and as educators who care deeply about our seniors, we simply cannot continue to postpone and possibly re-cancel a graduation for our seniors. We do not feel that is a good response for them or for our community. 

    Therefore, we plan to do the best we can within these circumstances for our graduates. In addition to the video and yard signs, we want to provide seniors with an opportunity to wear their caps and gowns, participate in a voluntary “graduation procession” of sorts, get their names read out on the loudspeaker, and get that important picture receiving their diploma. We have planned, and believe we can do this in a drive-through fashion that meets compliance and honors our students as well as possible. We know this is not the perfect situation, but it can and will be special and memorable for our kids and families. Although more details will be coming from your site principals in the weeks to come, we want to just provide a glimpse at what graduation week will look like. The chart below should help explain what we have planned. For all of the drive-through graduation processions, GSP Studios will provide professional photography and will give details for purchasing photos. Again, we will share more details soon, and thank you for your understanding and support during this time!
