Newkirk Graduation Plan
May 22, 2020
The parade will start at 6:00 pm from Lions Park, down Main Street, ending at the school.
Parking: The main high school lot, the lot north of the gym, the middle school, the elementary school. (DO NOT PARK IN THE SPACES ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE GYM)
Following the parade (approximately 6:30) Commencement will start.
Upon your arrival, make your way to the holding area that will be set up on the west side of the gym. We will go in alphabetical order. When directed, graduates and their guests (a reasonable number) will enter through the northwest doors of the gym. There will be four designated areas on the gym floor, one for each graduate and their guests. A waiting graduate and guests will be in the entry way on the northwest side of the gym. As a graduate gets called to receive their diploma the next graduate and their guest will move up to the next space. Guests will be able to take pictures of their graduate as they receive their diploma. After the graduate exits the stage, they and their guests will exit the gym through the southeast doors.
Flowers will be located near the exit.
Please exit the gym after your graduate receives their diploma.
Please follow social distancing guidelines.
We estimate approximately 1 minute for each graduate.
Please have cameras ready when your graduate walks across the stage.
Thank you for your cooperation.
