PVUSD asks community to celebrate class of 2020 with yard decorations

WATSONVILLE—Pajaro Valley Unified School District is asking residents to help honor the district’s 1,179 graduates by turning on their outdoor lights and decorating their yards between May 25-29.

The “Lights On Grads” and Yard/Door Decoration Event is a way to give graduating seniors a send-off after every commencement ceremony was canceled due to concerns over Covid-19.

From June 1-4, each high school will host a drive-through graduation event at their site, during which seniors inside their vehicles will receive a bag containing their diploma cover, accomplishment medals, soles, sashes and programs. 

PVUSD will hold a virtual graduation for all seniors on June 5, and the graduates will return for a reunion/graduation event in the winter or spring 2021.
