Dear Seniors and Parents,
This year we are planning to recognize over 590 Westview seniors during our graduation ceremony. Both our staff and students are working hard to organize an event that recognizes the importance of this academic accomplishment. Below you will find a list of expectations we hold for all seniors participating in our graduation ceremony. We believe that these guidelines will help promote an atmosphere of celebration, respect, and honor in an event of which we all can be proud.
Please know that participation in the graduation ceremony is entirely voluntary, therefore participants are required to conform to these rules:
- Required dress for women: Dress, pantsuit, or skirt and blouse appropriate for the occasion; dress shoes.
- Required dress for men: Dress shirt and tie; dress slacks; dark dress shoes.
- Graduating seniors may not carry cell phones, cameras, flowers, beach balls, or articles of any kind into the ceremony.
- No adornments are allowed on the graduation gown or cap (i.e. leis, scarves, etc.)
- Evidence indicating possession, consumption, or use of any intoxicating agents or the possession or use of any type of explosives will result in immediate removal from the graduation ceremonies,
- Pranks, vandalism, or lingering on campus outside of school hours are a violation of school rules. Entering campus for pranks is trespassing; the damage done is vandalism. Any participants in such acts will be suspended from school and required to pay restitution for damages. Anyone involved in such an incident will not be allowed to participate in senior activities nor in the graduation ceremony.
To the class of 2013, a simple thank you is not enough. Westview will truly miss the leadership, school spirit, creativity, compassion, and ambition that our graduates brought to the campus each and every day. You have navigated your high school years in a manner that will leave us remembering the class of 2013 for years to come. Through continued achievements in academics, athletics, visual and performing arts, business, and NJROTC, the class of 2013 has continued to raise the bar and let the entire state of California know what it means to be part of the Westview community.
It is my hope that the class of 2013 finishes their time at Westview on a strong note, and that we have 100% participation in the graduation ceremony. Whether in class or at the multiple celebratory activities, we hold the expectation that all of our students act in a respectful, responsible manner. It is truly heartbreaking to meet with students and parents who will not be able to participate in their graduation ceremony due to failing a class, or having a lapse in judgment over the last few weeks of school.
Please help us to ensure that the final days at Westview for the class of 2013 are a meaningful and positive experience for everyone in our community.
June 13, 2013 - Westview Stadium
8:30-10:30 Graduation Practice

Seniors arrive and report to the check in location (students will be notified of check-in location at graduation rehearsal.) Leave cell phones, cameras, purses, flowers, leis, IPods and all electronics at home. NO Beach balls or other items that will distract attention from the graduates are allowed.
Please do not bring any accessories (i.e. leis, corsages, scarves, stickers, etc. Parents may present them to the graduates after the ceremony.)

No decoration of gowns or caps is permitted.
Do Not Bring
Cameras, cell phones, Ipods, other electronics, or purses to the ceremony.
Immediately following the ceremony students must drop off their graduation gown at the front entrance of the school in order to receive a ticket to pick up their diploma from the counselor in front of the school. Students may keep the cap and stole. Diplomas not picked up June 8th will be available during normal registrar office hours. Students planning to attend college in the fall should be sure to leave a final transcript request with the registrar.
Each graduate will be issued four (4) tickets for admission. Stadium gates will open at 1:30 p.m. for TICKET HOLDERS ONLY. At 2:30 p.m. all others will be allowed to enter. In consideration of other guests, please do not bring large coolers, opened beverage bottles, balloons, beach balls or air horns. Umbrellas will be allowed in but must be taken down prior to start of ceremony.
Please plan on carpooling, as parking will be at a premium. Allow ample time for traffic, parking, and getting to your seat. There will be no seat saving. We have arranged for additional parking at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 12835 Black Mountain Road. Buses will begin loading at the church parking lot at 1:00. Bus shuttle will be available until 3:00 when the graduation ceremony begins. After the ceremony, buses will begin picking up at Westview from 4:30 and continue until 5:30. You are encouraged to make use of this shuttle service, as there is limited parking available at Westview and the surrounding community. Thank you for your cooperation.
