SJND Commencement Postponed Until Summer 2020

Due to the current social distancing protocols implemented throughout the state, SJND has made the difficult decision to postpone the Class of 2020 Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement Ceremony. SJND instead hopes to celebrate its seniors this summer, with Baccalaureate Mass rescheduled for July 30 at 6:00 p.m. and Commencement planned for August 1 at 2:00 p.m. 

“We realize that this news may be especially disheartening for [our seniors],” Interim Principal Julianne Guevara explained in a letter to families. “Over the past four years, you have left your mark as Pilots, and we, as a community, would like to celebrate and honor you and your dedication to SJND. Please know that we recognize the importance of coming together to pray, embrace one another and recognize your many achievements in person,” Ms. Guevara added.

SJND has also planned several ways to recognize its exceptional seniors throughout the remainder of the school year, including a virtual Senior Recognition Night, planned for May 20. The school will publish additional details, including ways to tune in to the events, to in the coming weeks.

“We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2020’s many accomplishments, together as a SJND family, very soon!” said Ms. Guevara.
