Class of 2021 Tustin High School Graduation Details-Due to COVID protocols, Tustin High School is planning three small IN-PERSON commencement ceremonies on Tuesday, May 25th at 8:00 am, 11:00 am, and 2:00pm at Northrup Stadium.
Graduation Will Feel Different-Graduation will look and feel very different than it has in the past. The format we will use this year will not require a rehearsal and will allow us to try some new things that we have never done at Tustin High. Graduates will be able to choose the ceremony and sit near their friends instead of the traditional alphabetical order. We will focus on keeping speeches and performances lighthearted. We will NOT be issuing tickets to the ceremony. Graduates and their guests must check in at the same time, 40 minutes prior to their selected ceremony.
Graduation Tickets-Graduation tickets will NOT be used this year. Graduates and their 3 guests must check in at the same time, 40 minutes prior to their confirmed ceremony. Be on time.
What If I am using my sibling’s gown? If you will be using a black gown worn from a previous Tustin High graduate, you may purchase any of the following items at the Student Store: a cap for $10, tassel for $10 and a medallion for $10.
What If I want to “borrow” a cap and gown? Caps and gowns will also be available to borrow free of charge at the Student Store . Borrowed caps, gowns, and tassels must be returned to the Front Office between Tuesday, June 1- ThursdayFriday, June 18 from 2:00pm-4:00pm.
Senior Obligations In order to pick up your cap and gown at this event, seniors must take care of their outstanding obligations:

Seniors will also have an opportunity to clear out their PE and street lockers.
Parking-This will all depend on which side of the field the graduate is sitting on. Graduates will be placed on either the “Black Side” or “Red Side”. Graduates and Parents will be notified by email whether they will be sitting in the “Black Side” or the “Red Side”. (see attached Map). It is advised that the graduate and guests arrive in the same vehicle to the ceremony.
“Black Side” Seating – Graduates and guests that will be sitting on the “Black Side” (Visitor bleachers) will park on the field behind the Visitor bleachers off San Juan Street. “Black Side” guests and graduates must check in between the Sports Pavilion and the Portable 800 buildings. Once the ceremony is over, the graduates sitting on the “Black Side” will exit the field area behind the visitor bleachers to meet their guests (see attached map).
“Red Side” Seating- Graduates and guests that hat will be sitting on the “Red Side” (Home bleachers) will park in the main parking lot at Tustin High. Please be aware that this lot may fill up. Once the ceremony is over, graduates sitting on the “Red Side” will exit the field area towards the parking lot to meet their guests (see attached map).
