School exploring graduation possibilities with survey

What would a high school graduation ceremony look like under social distancing guidelines in place during the novel coronavirus pandemic?

At Lake Roosevelt Junior/Senior High School, Dean of Students Sara Kennedy said that she and Principal Kirk Marshlain have been going through the results of a survey of parents and seniors.

The results so far show that most do not want any kind of virtual graduation, but something with some more personal interaction.

Kennedy said there is about a 50/50 split between preferring a drive-through graduation, or a graduation with people spaced out on the football field. There is some interest in delaying the ceremony until July or August.

Marshlain told The Star they have received 54 responses so far.

There are 43 seniors total.
