Disappointed in graduation plans


Last updated 5/6/2020 at 9:13am

Having just read the new senior graduation plan, as a grandma of a senior, I am upset. It feels like after 13 or 14 years of supporting, praising, fighting for, crying with, and celebrating, grandparents not only have no input, but can now park where they can and there will be a virtual version of graduation, IF you have a smart phone, otherwise?

I heard from my senior, who is pretty upset, as the plan is for only 10 at a time on the field and they must wait in vehicles until their 10 are called (so mostly virtual for them, as well). A group photo of each 10 will be taken, then all pieced together later as a senior graduation picture. She said their diplomas and awards will be tossed to them in plastic bags. She, as of Friday evening, says she, for one, won’t be attending.
