With the end of an unprecedented school year around the corner, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District's (PYLUSD) looks forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our high school seniors. With a commitment to all state and local health and safety guidelines at the forefront of our minds, PYLUSD will move forward with traditional graduation ceremonies with a limited number of spectators per graduate and live streaming. Depending on updates that occur to public health guidance, the number of spectators permitted per graduate may differ from school to school due to the number of graduates and the capacity of the stadium. Below is information about traditional and alternative graduation ceremony dates, times, locations, and more.
Included below are links to each schools' personalized graduation hashtags. Use these hashtags on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts to share in each school's graduation excitement, and for the opportunity to be featured on big screens at the ceremony that day. Lastly, if you are unable to attend one of the graduation ceremonies, that is not a problem! PYLUSD will live stream the traditional ceremonies of all schools.
Traditional Graduation Schedule 2021
Traditional graduation ceremonies will feature enhanced safety protocols with a limited number of spectators per student and live streaming. Each ceremony will take place in Bradford Stadium at Valencia High School and Nathan Shapell Memorial Stadium at Yorba Linda High School. Graduates, staff members, and spectators with tickets will be invited to attend a physically-distanced ceremony. Additional spectators will be invited to enjoy the ceremony at home via a high quality, live stream feed provided with the link below. Students may choose to participate in one ceremony only—either the traditional or the drive up/walk through—and not both.
Drive Up/Walkthrough Graduation Schedule 2021
For students and families that may feel out of their comfort zone participating in the traditional event, an alternative drive up/walk through graduation ceremony option will be offered for each school at the district office in Placentia. The address is 1301 E. Orangethorpe Ave, Placentia, CA 92870. Students may choose to participate in one ceremony only—either the traditional or the drive up/walk through—and not both.
