Congratulations to the Tyee High School Class of 2020. Our seniors have worked hard, and they deserve to be celebrated. We wish we could give them a traditional graduation ceremony, but since that is not possible due to the pandemic, we have worked hard to plan a creative way to celebrate commencement.
Seniors and families will be scheduled to rotate through a drive-through graduation ceremony at Tyee High School on Saturday, June 13. Wearing their cap and gown, each student will receive their diploma cover, get a professional photo taken, and be cheered on by teachers and staff with appropriate social distancing. Students will also receive senior awards, yearbook, graduation programs and Class of 2020 memorabilia.
We know it will not be the same as a traditional commencement because the whole class cannot be there together at the same time. However, everyone will have a chance to be honored in front of their families, see the teachers who have supported them, and be at their school one last time.
This will be closer to the traditional experience than a Zoom or virtual ceremony, which students have been clear they do not want.
Students will be scheduled for a specific time. Please stay tuned for more instructions.
