It’s finally the day the Caldwell County Class of 2020 has been looking forward to for the past twelve years, and while it may look a lot different than they originally imagined, it’s still going to be a day they’ll never forget.
High School Principal Christy Phelps says that while this year’s graduation won’t be a traditional one by any means the community can still participate and celebrate the Class of 2020 through a student parade Friday evening beginning around 5:30.
She adds there are a few instructions seniors and their families need to follow during the parade to help make sure things run smoothly. Seniors and their families are being asked to stay in numerical order at all times, turn their flashers on when the parade starts, stay close, but not too close, to the car in front of them, and to be aware that traffic will slow down as the parade route nears the high school as students will be receiving their diplomas.
Phelps states for the best photo opportunity of this monumental occasion the person riding in the back seat on the driver’s side of each vehicle is being encouraged to be in charge of the camera.
She also notes that in order to be fair to all graduating seniors, the virtual commencement service start time will be delayed so that all graduates have the opportunity to get home and watch with their families.
