High School Graduation RELOCATES


From State Route 330 at Lakeview Point the Lake Fire plumes high early Thursday morning, 

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 (www.bearvalleyusd.org) for updated information. We recognize this is a very fluid situation and information may change rapidly. We will continue to provide information as we receive it from official sources.  

The mission of the Bear Valley Unified School District is to educate, inspire, 

and prepare all students to be life-long learners and responsible global citizens.
