SLO High School holds drive-thru graduation ceremony

Posted at 9:03 PM, Jun 05, 2020

San Luis Obispo High School celebrated its seniors while also staying within social distancing guidelines on June 5 with drive-through style graduation.

Students and their families drove to the school and had their names announced over a loudspeaker.

Principal Leslie O'Connor said they started planning this ceremony about a month ago with their parent volunteer groups and district office.

"We miss you greatly," O'Connor said. "We appreciate you, we want you to stay safe and well. And we love our San Luis Obispo High School Tigers."

O'Connor said they are hoping to have a graduation in-person on August 8, but they are very proud of the class of 2020 during this unprecedented time.

"I'm very happy that we could do something to celebrate and even though it wasn't like the normal graduation, that was supposed to happen, it's different and it's exciting so I'm really thankful for it," SLOHS Graduate Minea Olsson said.
