AHS officials are in the final planning stages of approval from the class of 2020 for a drive-in celebration using a combination of live speeches on stage—with social distancing and group gathering restrictions—and a slideshow of each senior at an off-site location near North Point Mall, FCS Area Superintendent Tim Corrigan said during the work session.
Cambridge and Milton high schools are planning to use a drive-thru celebration, which will give seniors an opportunity to go on campus one last time, Corrigan said. For example, in Cambridge, students will be invited to drive through a decorated route around the campus that celebrates the class of 2020. Graduates and their families are encouraged to decorate cars, dress in graduation attire and drive through the campus at predetermined and prescribed time slots, at the end of which seniors will receive their diploma covers, he said.
"I want to acknowledge that much has been done; we have more planning to do. Be assured, our leaders are listening, adapting and supporting our parents and communities, working side by side with them for possible summer celebrations," Corrigan said.
