Dear Parents / Guardians and Seniors,

Patriot High School is proud to announce our Class of 2021 graduation ceremonies will be held on May 25 and May 26, 2021. The ceremony on May 25 will be held for last names: A-K, and May 26 will be held for last names: L-Z. As this momentous time in your lives draws near, all of us feel the excitement in the air.  Now, more than ever, every senior must strive to remain focused to ensure your participation in the graduation ceremony.  This celebration of achievement represents the best of Patriot High School and the broader Warrior Community.  We want YOU there!  In preparation for this event, please allow me to focus your attention on several key points including the attached "Senior Timeline" document.  Parents, please review this information with your graduate.

GUEST INFORMATION--Each graduate will be allowed 4 guests at graduation.  There is limited seating at the stadium based on seating capacity and the California Department of Public Health's COVID-19 guidelines. Extra guests per graduate are not allowed, and please remember we will expect all guests to social distance in family clusters and wear a mask. 

ELECTRONIC TICKETS—Students will complete a Google Form (link and directions below) to request tickets using their district computer accounts by May 14, 2021. A PDF attachment with all four tickets will be emailed to the student during the week of May 17- May 21. Guest will need to present a digital or printed copy of the ticket with the scannable QR code upon entry to the ceremony. Each QR code is unique for each guest and can only be used one time.
