A decided lack of pomp and circumstance notwithstanding, most Vallejo High School seniors shared one note of optimism as they showed up on campus Thursday with their caps and gowns for the school’s foray into the COVID-19 era of graduations.
It wasn’t much, but at least it was something.
As the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the season’s traditional events and ceremonies across the nation, the school’s planned ceremony for the 2020 class on June 10 is a no-go. The ceremony is still scheduled for June 10, but the 6:30 p.m. event is a virtual graduation ceremony.
Redhawk seniors were given the opportunity to have their pictures taken while standing on a stage holding their diplomas while dressed up. The pictures will then be added to a slideshow that will be part of the virtual ceremony next month.
