Graduation Parade: Due to continued Covid related health restrictions, only graduates and their family members that accompany them in their vehicles will be allowed on campus for the drive through.
- Seniors should have their cap and gown on for the parade and drive-thru ceremony. Those without cap and gown will not be admitted to the high school campus for the drive thru ceremony. Be sure to have your tassel on the right, so that you can turn it at the "ceremony" at the end of the parade. This is a symbol of transition from a student to a graduate.
