State alerts schools leaders about new brightly-colored fentanyl

Fentanyl, an extremely potent and dangerous synthetic opioid, continues to be a major contributor to drug overdoses in California, including among youth. The state alerted education leaders this week reminding them about the concerning trends of opioid overdoses and warning them about a new brightly-colored fentanyl.

Class of 2022 Graduation Information

We are eagerly preparing for graduation ceremonies this year for our graduating classes at Central Coast High, Marina High, Monterey High, Monterey Adult School and Seaside High. Last year, we partnered with the Monterey County Fairgrounds and the ceremonies were so successful that we will again host our events at this venue. We know having families attend graduation is important and the benefit of hosting them at the fairgrounds is the ability to allow seniors to have enough tickets.

The district and your student’s high school are working aggressively behind the scenes to ensure this year’s graduation ceremonies are special for our Classes of 2022.

All graduations will be held on Friday, June 3 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds located at 2004 Fairground Road in Monterey. The times are as follows:

Marina High School: 9:00 am at the Pattee Main Arena
Central Coast High School: 10:30 am at the Payton Stage
Seaside High School: 12:00 pm at the Pattee Main Arena
Monterey Adult School: 2:00 pm at the Payton Stage
Monterey High School: 3:30 pm at the Pattee Main Arena

Important Information

Provided below is important information. When students begin to pick up their caps and gowns, and other items, additional information, such as required entrance tickets and assigned seating and instructions will be provided.

The graduation ceremonies are ticketed events. Each graduate will be allowed ten (10) guests admission by ticket only. If a student needs additional tickets they can request them from their school principal or office staff.
Audience seating will be fixed or marked, with readily identifiable signs to indicate section, row, and seat.
Graduates are to arrive 45 minutes prior to their ceremony time and report to the student staging area. Once a student enters the staging area, they will need to remain with their graduating class for the remainder of the ceremony - exiting and re-entry will not be permissible. Families will not be allowed in the staging area, but can begin entering the site ceremony venue for their assigned seating.
Ticketed guests are recommended to arrive no earlier than 45 minutes prior to a ceremony to allow for the prior ceremony to conclude and attendees to exit.
Graduates and their families are guests of the Monterey County Fairgrounds and are expected to follow all Monterey County Fairgrounds guidelines as well as expectations from our school sites.
All graduation ceremonies will be streamed LIVE on MPUSD TV ( and LifeTouch Photography will be onsite capturing a photo of graduates as they exit the stage with their diploma.
We understand that families will want to take photos of their graduates; however, to ensure we are able to prepare and clean for the ceremony following your graduate’s school, we kindly ask that ticketed guests exit the main fairgrounds seating area immediately following the ceremony.

Welcome to Marina High School

Ms Rebecca Tyson, Principal
Greetings Mariners,
We are looking forward to an exciting 2022-2023 school year at Marina High School. Entering our sixth year of implementation of our Early College and Career model we are elated to have established a successful model. Scholars are able to earn college credit during their high school journey while also earning an Associates degree or classes towards an IGETC, general education requirements for college.  In addition to earning college credits, scholars have the opportunity to enroll in Career Technical Education (CTE) classes.  CTE classes prepare scholars to enter the workforce applying learned skill sets.  These skill sets (resume building, mock interviews, soft skills, etc.) are transferable to all jobs.
Over the past few years there have been many construction projects at Marina High School to include a new gymnasium, chemistry lab, culinary, health, and digital music production classrooms, and three portables to support our growing enrollment.  We are excited to communicate that the district has made a commitment to have a new multi-use field installed starting in the year 2023.   
In continuing with our Early College and Career model, we will be exploring how we are all Efficacious, Adaptable, Wordly Wise, and Influential, further developing ourselves, our community, and our impact on the world. Our hope is that all Mariners, staff and scholars understand their purpose and have the agency to achieve it.  
At Marina High School we view agency as: “The capacity and propensity to take purposeful initiative-the opposite of helplessness. Young people with high levels of agency do not respond passively to their circumstances; they tend to seek meaning and act with purpose to achieve the conditions they desire in their own and others’ lives.”
          -Tom Vander Ark, 2015
Marina High’s dedicated staff have many events and moments planned that will help us realize this vision as a community. Please contact the office if you would like to volunteer at Marina High School or to inquire how you can get involved.
