SAN ANGELO, TX – Grape Creek ISD is inviting family, friends, and community members to attend the 2020 “Drive-In” Graduation.
The “movie style” production will be broadcasted a total of four times before Memorial Day. According to the school district, they will offer two showings on Friday, May 22nd, and two on Saturday, May 23rd at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Vehicles will enter through the south and north entrances and park in the parking lot behind the high school at 8834 Grape Creek Road to view a pre-filmed, full-length virtual ceremony played on the giant screen. The video will be produced by San Angelo Live’s Manny Diaz.
Students and their families can listen to the virtual ceremony by tuning in to the 95.9 on their automobile radios.
“The school made every effort to ensure this year’s graduating seniors were not slighted by the pandemic that closed schools and forced teaching through social distancing,” said the district.
“The virtual ceremony will include aspects of the usual graduation, such as speeches from the valedictorian and salutatorian and recognition of student accomplishments.”
The ceremony will also be shown on a looped basis beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday or online at www.grapecreekisd.net.
