    OHS Graduation 2021

    Dear Parents,
    We are pleased to announce that Oceanside High School graduation will take place on June 10th 2021 on the OHS campus, in the John Carroll Stadium. We are thankful to have the ability to have an in-person graduation ceremony for our students this year. With this great tradition there are a few obstacles which we must overcome together. Seating is limited due to State and County social distancing protocols. We have had to put policies in place to make sure we provide tickets to all students.

    We will hold the graduation ceremony in the John Carroll stadium. This will allow us to hold one ceremony with students allowing for our graduates and their guests to enjoy this experience in a safe environment. We will issue an equal number of tickets to each graduating senior. This will ensure that every graduate has an equal opportunity to have guests at the graduation ceremony.

    ● Admission Tickets: All graduating seniors will be issued four tickets to the graduation ceremony on Wednesday, June 9 th after
    graduation rehearsal. Any person attending the event, regardless of age (including infants and toddlers), will be required to have a ticket
    to enter the stadium. There will be no charge for admission tickets.
     Handicapped Seating Area: A limited number of handicapped accessible seats will be available for persons requiring this type of access.
    Seating in the handicapped area will be limited to the handicapped person and one attendee. Admission Tickets will be required for
    anyone sitting in this area. The deadline to submit for a Handicapped Permit will be Friday, May 28th.
    ● No Exceptions: All graduating seniors will be issued four tickets. Lost tickets will not be replaced. We are asking that if you do not have a ticket for the event, you do not go to the event venue. We will be livestreaming the event via KOCT
    online for those who do not have tickets.
