threatening to increase the damaged acreage up more than 10,000 acres.
The Bear Valley Unified School District
received a request from the U.S. Forest Service to utilize Big Bear High School as one of
the Incident Command Centers in response to the Lake Fire. In order to
fully cooperate with the U.S. Forest Service and in the best interest of the
safety of our families and community, Bear Valley Unified School District
Administration made the decision to relocate Big Bear High School Graduation to
Big Bear Middle School.
The Big Bear High School Graduation Ceremony
will begin at 4:00 P.M. at Big Bear
Middle School (41275 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake) on Friday, June 19, 2015.
Parking for graduation will be located at the overflow ski resort parking lots
on Garstin Road (behind Bear Valley Community Hospital) and Brownie Lane (west
of Walgreens). School buses will be available to serve as a shuttle service
between the parking lots and Big Bear Middle School. Handicap parking will be
available in the Middle School parking lot located at the corner of Jefferies
and Big Bear Blvd. We appreciate your complete cooperation in observing the
above noted parking instructions.
The school district ask, please allow additional time to
accommodate this location change. Please continue to check your local media
sources and the Bear Valley Unified School District website

fluid situation and information may change rapidly. We will continue to provide
information as we receive it from official sources.
