Frequently Asked Question
Q: Can I attend graduation?
A: Normally graduation is an event where we eagerly invite all those who want to celebrate with our graduates and their families. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions designed to protect our community, only the graduate and their immediate household (in the same car, one per graduate) will be able to physically attend the event. We are recording the Commencement so all friends and family can watch the exciting celebration. This recording will be available on our website’s Senior/Graduation page in the afternoon on June 7.
Q: Will you hold make-up events in the summer when mandates lift further?
A: The seniors shared throughout the spring that what was most important to them about graduation was being together and graduating together. We are thrilled that we are able to celebrate our seniors and hold their graduation on the planned date, June 7, 2020. Committing to this date allows all seniors to attend and participate, rather than losing seniors as jobs and school takes them away.
Q: I want to give a gift to a senior. How can I do that?
A: For those not attending the private event, we suggest you contact the graduate and family and ask what is best for them. For those attending the private event, gifts bag will be available for each senior and you may place your gifts in these bags when you arrive.
Q: Can I get a physical copy of the graduation event?
A: Yes. The weekend events will be recorded and available on our website’s Senior/Graduation page. We are working on a way for each family to download their own copy for personal keeping. We’ll update that information as soon as we know specifics.
