  • 2020 Graduation Announcement

    Taft Union High School District Seniors and their families:

    Under normal circumstances, our students would be taking their AP Statistics test in the IRC today, ASB would be preparing for the senior rally, band and choir would be rehearsing for their end of year concerts and we would be getting ready to host the Spring sports banquet. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to close our schools and shift instruction to distance learning in order to keep you, our staff and our community safe. It is with everyone’s safety in mind that I share with you the difficult decision to host a virtual graduation this year instead of our traditional ceremony. With just a few weeks before our scheduled ceremony on June 3rd, a traditional ceremony with over 200 graduates and thousands of loved ones in the stands does not appear to be feasible. Therefore we will be hosting a virtual graduation that will closely align with the structure of our traditional ceremony. Our band will play, the choir will sing, you will be welcomed by our faculty, speeches will be delivered and the graduates names will be called as their senior picture and name is shown on the screen. The virtual graduation will take place on the same date and time as originally scheduled. On June 3rd , you will be sent a link so that you can watch the ceremony at 8 p.m. and celebrate your accomplishment with your loved ones. We promise to make the virtual graduation the best it can be and to appropriately honor the successful completion of your high school career. In the next few weeks, you will receive more information regarding the virtual ceremony. We thank you for your understanding.




    Anuncio de graduación 2020 

    Familiares y estudiantes del doceavo grado del Distrito Escolar Taft Union High

    En circunstancias normales, nuestros estudiantes hoy estuvieran tomando su examen de Estadística AP en el salón IRC, la Asociación de Estudiantes estuviera preparando la celebración para a los estudiantes del grado doceavo, la banda y el coro estuvieran ensayando para sus conciertos del fin de año y estuvieramos organizando el banquete para los deportes de primavera. Desafortunadamente, la pandemia de COVID-19 nos ha llevado a cerrar nuestras escuelas y cambiar la instrucción al aprendizaje a distancia para mantenerte a ti, a nuestro personal y a nuestra comunidad a salvo. Con la seguridad de todos en mente, comparto la difícil decisión de organizar una graduación virtual este año en lugar de la ceremonia tradicional. Con solo unas pocas semanas antes de la ceremonia programada para el 3 de junio, una ceremonia tradicional con más de 200 graduados y miles de seres queridos en el estadio no parece ser posible. Por lo tanto, organizaremos una graduación virtual que se alineará estrechamente con la estructura de nuestra ceremonia tradicional. Nuestra banda tocará, el coro cantará, serás recibido por nuestra facultad, se pronunciarán discursos y se llamaran los nombres de los graduantes mientras se muestra su nombre y foto del grado doceavo. La graduación virtual tendrá lugar en la misma fecha y hora que la ceremonia programada originalmente. El 3 de junio, se le enviará un enlace digital para que puedas ver la ceremonia a las 8 p.m. y celebrar tu logro con tus seres queridos. Prometemos hacer que la graduación virtual sea lo mejor posible y honrar adecuadamente la finalización exitosa de tu carrera en la escuela superior. En las próximas semanas, recibirás más información sobre la ceremonia virtual. Gracias por su comprensión.
