Commencement ceremonies for the Diagonal High School Class of 2020 is set for 7 p.m. Friday, May 15. but the ceremony itself will look nothing like any before, thanks to the coronavirus social distancing restrictions.
The ceremony will take place on a stage located on Broadway Street. Graduates will be allocated two reserved parking spaces for their families or friends near the ceremony stage.
Other spectators in cars will be allowed to line both sides of Broadway or along the parade route that winds through town from the school, along Broadway, circling back by the school to end at the stage on Broadway. Spectators must remain in their cars at all times.
The graduates are asked to meet at the gym at 6:15 p.m. to get their caps and gowns. They will then board a shuttlebus that will transport them to Broadway to their place on the stage.
The public welcome will be delivered by senior Erin Sobotka.
Valedictorian Erin Sobotka and salutatorian Kayla Bentley will deliver their tradition speeches.
The keynote address will be delivered by Taylor Bentley.
Near the end of the ceremony, graduates will walk across the stage, receive their awards, scholarships, and diplomas and pick up flowers for their parents.
KSIB will provide a livestream of the ceremony to allow viewing of the graduates as they receive their diplomas. The link is http://www.citylinktv.com/channel/creston-ksib-radio/.
As they exit the stage, each graduate’s family (up to 10 people) will be allowed to exit their cars for photos.
At the end of the ceremony, a class photo will be taken.
All graduates, families, and spectators are asked to adhere to CDC guidelines for social distancing throughout the event.
