Senior Updates!

Dear Class of 2021 and Families,
It is with great pleasure that I announce that we will be having a modified Graduation Ceremony in Trojan Stadium on Friday May 28 at 2:00pm - 4:00pm.  It will be different, logistically challenging and highly structured but it will be a wonderful celebration of you, our Senior Class!  We will be following the requirements and guidelines issued by the California Department of Public Health and reinforced by the Alameda County of Public Health Department.
 
As of May 1 (including on May 4, when the state notifies counties of their status of their Blueprint for a Safer Economy Tier), Alameda was and is in the Orange Tier.  We will be organizing our event based on the Orange Tier guidelines.
 
Here are some basics to help everyone understand the guidelines we will have to follow:
Outdoor events such as ours will be able to operate at 33% capacity.
Each Graduate will be able to invite two (2) guests.
Graduates will walk stages that will be distanced.  There will be no handshakes or handoffs of materials.
Participants and Visitors seating must be assigned.
Participants and Visitors will need to register prior to the event.
Visitors will need to confirm household verification.
Participants and visitors will need to complete and have verified completion of a COVID-19 Screener.
Participants and visitors will be required to not congregate in groups at any time.  Only household members will be allowed to be together without social distance.
All participants and visitors will be required to leave campus promptly after the ceremony.
Seating will be assigned and designed to allow for an orderly dispersal of participants and visitors.
Disabled seating and parking will be available.
The event will be livestreamed (we will publish the link as soon as we have it).
 
Here are some things that you can expect to be coming your way:
Visitor and participate registration forms.
Disclaimer and Acknowledgement forms.
Ticket distribution plan/Seating assignment.
Visitor Screener.  Students will use the existing Frontline Screener.
Disabled Visitor form.
Livestream Link.

Thank you so much to the Student, Staff and Family Graduation Committees!! They have been supporting and planning this effort for many weeks!!

Seniors! There are just a few short days left to submit a photo for our Virtual Graduation Ceremony using this link: https://virtualgradceremony.com/cvhs/

Can’t wait to see everyone at Graduation!
 
In Togetherness,
