On Friday, June 11, the San Bernardino Unified School District (SBCUSD) Board of Education announced it will fulfill a promise made to the Class of 2020 whose graduation ceremony was forestalled last year due to COVID-19
A combined, in-person SBCUSD Class of 2020 graduation ceremony will be held Friday, June 18, 2021, beginning at 6 p.m.
The ceremony will be held at Glen Helen Pavilion located at 2575 Glen Helen Parkway, San Bernardino. Any members of the Class of 2020 who are interested in participating must complete the online interest form before 5 p.m. on June 14.
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the SBCUSD Board of Education made the decision to close physical schools and move to a distance learning model for the remainder of the 2019–2020 school year in hopes of protecting the health of students, families, and staff.
At the time when the difficult decision was made to cancel in-person commencement ceremonies and hold drive-thru ceremonies instead, the Board of Education committed to holding a make-up graduation ceremony when it became possible to do so.
Also, congratulations to the near 3,066 SBUSD members of the class of 2021.
