Dear Senior Families and Graduates,
Graduation is only a few days away! Please read below for important information regarding this special event.
Graduates, rehearsal will be at Mustang Stadium from 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm on Thursday, May 23. Please arrive promptly.
Graduates, this is a reminder that we will be taking photos at the Main (HS) Gym at 4:30 pm. Please arrive promptly and plan on staying until the ceremony begins.
Senior families and friends, gates will open at 5:00 pm. For safety purposes, the two stairways in the home bleachers will be the sole access points for the field at Mustang Stadium. The path from the concession area to the field will be closed to pedestrian traffic. Those in need of assistance should ride a staff-driven cart (circulating in the parking lots) down to field level.
According to our original plan, reserved seating will be in effect with four (4) reserved grass level seats per family and unlimited seating throughout the rest of the stadium. Please come with your seat numbers that were drawn last month and/or see our ushers for any needed assistance. They will have the list of assigned seats for reference.
We are pleased to offer the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds (2601 E Lake Ave, Watsonville), along with shuttle service to campus, as our overflow parking option. Thankfully because of this week’s sunshine, our on-campus parking has increased in availability for your use, along with the additional overflow parking. We will be posting real-time on-campus parking updates on MVC’s social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) from 4:15 pm until the ceremony has begun.
Parking at the Fairgrounds will open at 4:15 pm and the first shuttle bus will leave the Fairgrounds at 4:45 pm. Please see the shuttle schedule below for further details:
Fairgrounds to MVC - first bus leaves at 4:45 pm (Shuttles coming every 10 - 15 minutes)
Fairgrounds to MVC - last bus before ceremony leaves at 6:30 pm
MVC to Fairgrounds - first bus leaves immediately after the ceremony (Shuttles coming every 10 - 15 minutes)

For the return trip, pick-up will be at the same location as drop-off which will be at the Practice Field walkway.
