ROSAMOND — Rosamond High School’s Class of 2020 will get a drive-thru vehicle procession-style graduation next month using the high school track and football field.
Southern Kern Unified School District will host two graduation times, at 4 p.m. for students whose last names begin with A through J, and at 7 p.m. for students whose last names begin with K through Z on June 4 at the stadium.
Gates will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. The last car will be admitted at 5:30 p.m. for the first ceremony, and at 8:30 p.m. for the second ceremony.
“There will be one vehicle per graduate,” Southern Kern Superintendent Barbara Gaines said.
The vehicles will follow a route down the home side of the football field. There will be balloons decorating the field along with the graduates’ pictures. The students can pick up their pictures the next day when they pick up their diploma.
On the night of the procession they will get their diploma jacket, and have a picture taken by Williams Edwards Photography.
Rosamond High has about 178 students who will graduate this year.
Another 25 seniors will graduate from Rare Earth Continuation High School and Abe Lincoln Independent Study program at 6 p.m. June 2.
