Message from Principal Sabins - Commencement 2020

Good evening Marauder Families, 

We recognize that during these unprecedented times the more information we can provide in a timely manner the more effectively your family can plan, so with that in mind we had to make a tough decision about the tentative graduation scheduled for late July. Unfortunately, with the rise in COVID-19 cases in the last few weeks in San Diego, we will not be able to have an in-person ceremony with students and spectators in our stadiums. As a district, the safety of our students is always our top priority, so we have decided to move forward with our virtual graduation instead of a physical in-person ceremony.

At Mira Mesa High School, our team worked hard to develop a ceremony that mirrors our regular graduation ceremony but in a virtual format. I want to also extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who worked so thoughtfully to put this together so that we are able to again celebrate this amazing group of graduates.  This certainly is not the way we planned to conclude the year for the Class of 2020, but like all the obstacles students have faced this year, we are confident that they will overcome this set back as well. I know I have said it before, but it truly is my hope that you are able to find a sense of peace in this time of chaos, and also a new sense of purpose as we continue to write our story together. We really miss all of our students, but we will see each other again someday soon, that I promise! We are Mira Mesa. One Family, One Purpose!    

With that being said, I am excited to cordially invite all of you to our official virtual graduation ceremony on July 17, 2020! Let’s make this a memorable evening for all of our Seniors as we gather our families to celebrate them. We would love to see all of you dressed in your graduation gowns celebrating with your family at home, watching the video together as a class. I will send out the link on Friday, July 17, at 12:00 noon, and post it on the MMHS website, but let’s wait until 5:00pm to begin the show together! I would encourage all of our seniors to connect with friends via zoom or FaceTime to virtually connect with each other as we officially hold the class of 2020 graduation ceremony. We are so proud of our Marauders! Continue to be a light for others as you head off to your next adventure. Never forget who you are and always stay true to your why!

With excitement, pride and gratitude, 

Jeff Sabins
