The Class of 2021 Senior Information

Welcome Class of 2021! Our final year at Benicia High School has begun. We have so many fun filled events and activities planned in the upcoming months. We put together this informational page so you can keep track of all these important dates.


On March 1st we notified the Benicia High School Class of 2021 students and parents/guardians that we would provide our graduation plan on March 31st and that the decisions regarding graduation would be based on the state and county guidelines at that time to allow for proper planning. Working in concert with the Superintendent’s office and Cabinet, and following all state guidelines regarding large group gatherings, we are planning for an in-person graduation ceremony.

Solano County is currently in the Red Tier with gatherings being restricted. As a result, we will have a modified in-person graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 5th for the Class of 2021 and will live stream the event for friends and family to watch from any location. The elements of the ceremony and number of guests will be determined by the Solano County Tier as follows:

  • If we are in the Red Tier as of May 24th: We will hold two graduation ceremonies on June 5th, one at 10:00am for students with last names A-L and one at 2:00pm for students with last names M-Z. Two tickets per graduate will be allowed.

  • If we are in the Orange Tier as of May 24th: One graduation ceremony at 11:00am for the Class of 2021 with two tickets per graduate allowed.

  • If we are in the Yellow Tier as of May 24th: One graduation ceremony at 11:00am for the Class of 2021 with four tickets per graduate allowed.

We are optimistic that we will continue to see Solano County COVID19 rates decrease and move into the Orange or Yellow Tier by June. We encourage all of our students and families to practice safety measures in our community to help us meet this goal.  Our tiered plan and ticket numbers are based on the capacity allowed for outdoor gatherings per the latest California Department of Public Health Guidelines on Planning Commencement Ceremonies and the capacity of our stadium seating.

As a reminder, cap and gown distribution is on Friday, April 16th, from 3:00-4:00pm for those who have pre-ordered their items. This is a drive-through distribution event in the front parking lot of Benicia High School.

We will continue to provide more information and details in the coming weeks as we prepare for graduation. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2021!
