Our Millennium counselors and staff have been working for weeks to find a way to make sure our amazing seniors get the 4th quarter they deserve. After 12 years of learning, Senior year is a special time for students we all know how hard our class of 2020 has worked to get to this moment in their lives. We are all so proud of you. Unfortunately, the global pandemic has brought a lot of twists and unknowns to all aspects of everyone’s lives.
We all hope this situation passes soon and we monitor all communication coming from the State of California, the county health department and the office of education. But we are also concerned that, like most other aspects of life, we will not be able to proceed as we normally would with our senior activities.
Because we cannot hold large gatherings, our staff have been working together and want to try and make some lemonade out of the lemons we have been given. As we go through the senior events below we tried to find a way to make some of these memories still happen. While we are not allowed to hold a graduation ceremony or go to Prom or Disneyland, we want to still give you a day to remember.
Graduation: We understand that graduation is one of the most important parts of the high school experience and we are committed to making the best possible event that we can, given the circumstances. The Millennium High Graduation is still scheduled for Friday, May 22, 2020. At this time, we are not rescheduling/postponing the date for a traditional in-person ceremony. It is highly unlikely that we will be able to have a public gathering. In compliance with federal, state, and county orders, public gatherings are prohibited which will likely continue into the next several months. However, we will be recognizing this special moment with a “Drive Through” ceremony while still practicing social distancing. An invitation will be emailed and/or mailed out with specific details of a drive-through graduation by early May. We are planning something very unique and we believe that it will be a fun and festive experience for all! Some ideas include decorating cars, signs, music, photo opportunities, a real stage to receive your diploma, raffles, food, etc., once again, all while practicing social distancing. We will also have a dynamic virtual ceremony that will be shared as a keepsake of this special occasion available to all graduates and their families. All cap and gown orders have been placed and will be distributed before May 22nd. More information to follow in the near future.
GRAD Night: As Disneyland is now closed, Disneyland Grad Night is canceled and will not be rescheduled. We will fully reimburse all students that purchased tickets. If you paid for this event, you will be mailed a reimbursement check. Reimbursements will take 4 – 6 weeks for delivery. Please double check your mailing address as listed in Aeries.

Senior Breakfast: Unfortunately, our Senior Breakfast is canceled.
Prom: Our prom that was scheduled for March 14 was canceled. We will reimburse all students that had purchased tickets. You will receive a reimbursement check. If you paid for this event, you will be mailed a reimbursement check. Reimbursements will take 4 – 6 weeks for delivery.
