Different high schools in the Lompoc Unified School District have put out plans for their graduating seniors.

Cabrillo and Lompoc High Schools will be having a drive-thru celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 4, according to a press release. Students will have an opportunity to have their photo taken, as well as receive their diploma cover.

The district said that Maple High School will be hosting mini-graduations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 3. Each of their graduates will pick a time slot where they will have the opportunity to walk across the stage and receive their diploma. Only seven family members are allowed to attend, according to the statement.

Lompoc Adult School and Career Center will also be hosting a drive-thru graduation for their 42 high school graduates. It will take place at 5 p.m. on June 1 at the El Camino campus, according to the press release. Students will be able to individually exit their vehicles to pick up their diplomas.

The district said that everyone who leaves their vehicle must be wearing a mask, except when graduates cross the stage.

“While we know there may not be the traditional pomp and circumstance, providing the students this opportunity, in some fashion, has been a top priority for us as the year comes to a close,” Superintendent Trevor McDonald said.
