Class of 2020 Commencement (Rain Date: June 7)

June 6 @ 6:00 pm

GMHS will host an in-person, socially distant commencement for the class of 2020 at Mifflin Stadium on Saturday, June 6th.  The rain date for this event will be Sunday, June 7th.

Attendees are limited to the graduate and 4 other individuals (no more than 5 total).  If possible, the families should arrive in the same vehicle to minimize the cars in the parking lot.  All family members and students will be required to wear masks.  As the student enters the stadium, he/she will be able to remove the mask and walk across the stage.  Upon leaving the stage, the student will put the mask back on until the final photo opportunity.

Families will enter the Middle School parking lot using South Brobst Street.  Staff members will direct the family to a parking spot.  The family will wait in the car until a staff member directs them to the check-in location. 

After checking-in, the families will follow a series of cones to enter the stadium.  The overall walkthrough should take 10-15 minutes.

Upon entering the stage, each graduate will wait for his/her name to be called and walk across the stage with the diploma cover in hand.  Student names will be called each minute and families will have a brief moment to take pictures and then exit the stage as the next name is called.

 

After leaving the stage, a photographer from Purdon will take a picture of each graduate, which will be a gift from the school.  Parents will be able to pick up these photos at the high school office at a later time.

Each student will leave the stadium with a GM bag containing the diploma and any senior award the student received.  In order to maintain safe distances between families and to make sure we are following the schedule, families must exit the stadium after they pick up their diploma.

The times for each student to walk across the stage will be emailed and communicated to the families in the near future.  We are asking that you arrive 15 minutes before this scheduled time.
