The seniors will participate in a traditional ceremony but the audience will remain in their vehicles on the track or in the parking lot. The ceremony will air live on the local radio station. A videographer will film the graduation and create a commemorative video for seniors. “We have the luxury of having a small class so we can stay within the guidelines and have a more traditional ceremony,” said Principal Steve Prock. The senior slideshow usually shown at graduation will be viewed by small groups before the ceremony, and afterwards be posted on the school’s Facebook page.

Lost River Junior/Senior High School

Lost River Junior/Senior High School will host its graduation ceremony for its 40 seniors at 11 a.m., July 4 in front of the school. Families will be in cars for social distancing purposes, but plans are for seniors to sit in front of the stage, following social distancing, and participate in a traditional ceremony. Lost River has planned weekly celebrations leading up to the ceremony. At 11 a.m., June 6, the day of Lost River’s originally scheduled graduation, seniors will participate in the Merrill-Malin Graduation Sensation Parade, donning their caps and gowns and parading down the street in front of the elementary schools. A virtual senior awards and scholarship ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m., June 10 and a virtual signing day will be hosted on June 17. If guidelines allow, a small in-person celebration, such as a barbecue, will be the week before the July 4 ceremony.


“We want to make sure our seniors were still celebrated and still connected up to the graduation ceremony,” Ongman said. “Extending the timeframe is going to provide an opportunity to do things we would not otherwise be able to do.”
