SENIOR GRAD NIGHT (TBD):
This is an all-night, chaperoned, alcohol, and drug-free event held at Dave and Buster's in Mission Valley to ensure a safe environment in which our teens can celebrate their graduation. Grad Night is planned for Friday, June 11, 2021, and remains TBD because of COVD-19. 
 
Graduation Procession Parade - Torrey Pines parking lot during Senior Week - TBD per Covid19
 
Senior Photos: Seniors must get their pictures taken with Keane Studios in order to appear in the yearbook.  This is free of charge and separate from your Senior Portraits.  Please contact www.keanestudios.com to schedule an appointment.
 
Cap & Gown distribution (TBD):
  • If you still need to purchase a gown, you can do so at sdgrad.com.
  • If you would like to order a loaner cap, gown, & tassel, please email patricia.hargraves@sduhsd.net in the Student Store.
  • Students who bought their cap, gown & tassel may decorate their hats.  Remember, decorations must lay flat; there cannot be any height on top of the hat to avoid blocking another student from parents’ views. If there is height in the decoration, the student will be given a replacement hat at the staging gate.
 
Senior Check-Out: TBD
