We are pleased to inform that you that our six high schools will hold their Car Parade Diploma Celebrations on June 4 as planned. However, in response to county-wide curfews that may be in place over the next several days, our schools will amend their schedules to begin parades earlier, ensuring they end before the anticipated L.A County curfew time of 6 p.m.
On June 4th @ 7:15pm, the El Monte Union High School district will be streaming our Virtual Class of 2020 Celebrations to honor the amazing accomplishments of our class of 2020. While nothing can replace the celebration of a live in-person graduation ceremony with close family and friends, these tribute videos will honor and spotlight each of our 2020 graduates until such time that an in-person cermony can take place. Please click on the title of this story in order to view all of the video tribute links provided for each individual school.
We are so proud of the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 and their continued pursuit toward greatness! Here is our final issue of our Senior Spotlight!
