Here's a chance to celebrate and honor Mira Costa High School's class of 2020: Buy a yard sign to show your support.
The $10 yard signs are available for purchase online at 2020 MCHS Seniors Signs. All funds will be used to cover the cost of the sign, and any additional funds raised will be used towards the seniors' commencement activity.
The signs must be ordered by Thursday, April 24. Organizers are aiming for sign distribution to take place in the beginning of May, most likely with a drive-through pickup at Mira Costa.
Most California schools have physically shut down for the rest of the school year due to the coronavirus crisis. However, the Manhattan Beach Unified School District's school board decided last week to extend the school closure "until further notice," rather than closing for the rest of the school year. This action leaves open the possibility that something might change by June.
Some possibilities mentioned include having a virtual ceremony, or waiting until as late as July to hold an in-person ceremony.
A petition to hold an in-person graduation for Mira Costa High School's Class of 2020 has garnered more than 1,750 signatures.
"[A real graduation] is something we all want - we're trying to figure out how late in the summer we could go," said MBUSD Superintendent Mike Matthews at last week's school board meeting. "We will keep talking about it."
