Our messages of congratulations are running on billboards across the area. Check them out through June 7. A special thank you to Marquee Media for making them possible!
Parents, Students, and Friends,
We have a few updates as summer vacation begins for our families.
Our weekly communications will continue throughout the summer, providing updates on returning to school as well as normal reminders and updates when we start our 2020-2021 academic year.

To our Marauders – our students:
My heart is heavy. After speaking with several students, parents, and members of the faculty and staff over the last few days I wanted to reach out to you personally and directly. Let me start by saying that I unequivocally condemn the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many others. This is not and should not be a political statement but rather a matter of basic human dignity.
Parents, Students, and Friends,
As our 2019-2020 school year officially came to an end this week, our Jesuit Safe Return Task Force began its work, looking ahead for 2020-2021. Members of the task force are focusing on mitigating risk and making Jesuit High School Sacramento safe for students and staff to return to campus, and this focus encompasses all areas of our community. They are eager to incorporate your responses to the recent parent and student surveys about your COVID-19 remote experience, which provided needed insight as the task force prepares multiple scenarios for what may be a new education model.
Seniors and a car-full of their family were invited to drive through and pickup their caps and gowns. Faculty and staff lined up along the route, masked and respecting social distancing to wave homemade signs and cheer on cars. Relive the experience through the great coverage of some of our local stations.
Members of the faculty and staff at Jesuit High School in Sacramento distributed personalized lawn signs to seniors on Thursday, April 30, 2020.
The transition to Jesuit High School Sacramento for many freshmen is a crossroads for self-discovery and change. For Kevin Sheahan ’20, the Black Box Theater is the place where he found his passion and voice.
As a result of Jesuit High School Sacramento’s decision to close its campus for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, The Plank will be adapting its coverage to meet the needs of its readers during this unusual time. Our mission continues to be serving the Jesuit community with accurate and engaging news and feature stories.
Parents and Friends,
Continued Easter joy to everyone, especially in these challenging weeks. As we return from what we hope was a restful break, we hope you were able to reset and prepare to finish the academic year via remote learning. Today we come to you with the core of our school — our religion, our faith.
To Jesuit Sacramento Class of 2020
Our hearts break for you right now. We can only imagine the disappointment you feel each time we announce the extension of our remote learning. Now, learning that your graduation activities will not take place on campus on the original dates in May, your disappointment has likely turned into sadness. Please know that we, too, are sad that so many of your anticipated senior end-of-year traditions are unable to take place.
