New Grad Night Volunteers Needed 2022

Parents! Chaperones & Check-In Help Needed At Grad Night!


Get 50% of your Grad's fee reimbursed by being a chaperone.  (or half off a future Grad Night)

Does not need to be a parent. Anyone age 25+ can volunteer.  Each bus needs 1-2 Chaperones who will get in free and can enjoy all the attractions.  Special Chaperone lounge with free food & drinks. Your only task is to collect Grads' cell numbers on your bus while boarding then check off as Grads return at the end of the event & be sure the same students board the bus on the way home.  Grads will ride same bus to & from event.  Grads are on their own at the park and chaperones are free to enjoy!

$25 off your fee if you help with check-in as students arrive to board buses.  You will be reimbursed or apply it to a future Grad Night!  Email Grad Night Boosters at:

I know that this has been a year of uncertainty and change.  Unfortunately the local Covid Safety Guidelines are requiring Universal Studios to also change their plans for Grad Bash ‘21. 


We are anticipating for June 10, 2021 date, to be a popular day to celebrate, for both Orange County and Los Angeles County, so we wanted the information to be disseminated as soon as available for your planning purposes.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Grad Night Questions?

If you have questions regarding Grad Night, email


Grad Night is not an ASB event and is not sponsored by Tesoro High School or CUSD.

Medication at Grad Night

If your student needs to bring medication to Grad Night (including Epi-Pens, inhaler, diabetic supplies, etc) they may keep it with them as long as a parent (even if the grad is 18) fills out the attached Grad Night Medication Release (PDF) form. Grads will need to bring this form to check-in to clear security.  Universal Studios has two First Aid stations staffed with nurses should Grads require any assistance. Locker
