Class of 2020

While hundreds of friends and family members usually gather in the large gym at Unalaska City School in anticipation for the seniors to begin their ceremonial walk down the aisle for graduation, this year's UCSD event looked far different.

 

Congratulations to Unalaska's Class of 2020!

The Unalaska City School District got creative with graduation this year, in order to make a festive day while following social distancing requirements.  Diplomas were given out to students in groups of five, followed by a caravan of seniors, and finally a virtual graduation event on Channel 8.  You can watch the program here:

For high school students across the globe, end of year events like graduation and prom are looking almost unrecognizable from previous years. With social distancing mandates—due to the coronavirus pandemic—prohibiting groups from gathering, schools can't legally host dances or events.

 

But for Unalaska High School, that red tape won't be stopping students from celebrating. This Saturday, May 2, high school students will have the chance to attend Vrom, or virtual prom.
