Class of 2020 Celebrations

Vista Unified School District is committed to finding unique ways to celebrate your Class of 2020 student during this challenging time. A committee comprised of students, teachers, and administrators from all sites are working to develop virtual celebration campaigns, including Senior Commit Week, Senior Week, Spring Athletes, and Senior Spotlights, to name only a few. Additionally, and on behalf of the ASB, each Class of 2020 student will receive a yard sign commemorating their achievement and provided free of charge. A distribution plan is currently underway.

Follow your senior's school social media accounts to see daily celebrations.

The high school principals have created a message to the class of 2020 graduates. Please read their messages in the link below.

It is possible that county health orders may delay an in-person graduation ceremony from occurring on June 3rd. To that end, the committee is working to create a meaningful celebration opportunity for seniors and their families.

Senior Awards Night

We will celebrate seniors who have earned special recognition; however, this may need to occur in a virtual setting. Each school site will structure their celebration individually based on their community's needs. All celebrations will adhere to county health orders and reflect the community wishes.
