Unalaska City School

A Preview Of This Week's Graduation Event

May 10, 2021

Congratulations to the Unalaska City School District Class of 2021!

Due to COVID-19 crowd restrictions, graduation will look different than previous years. The graduation ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 15 at 7 p.m. The event is limited to a small audience, and the general public should plan to watch over Channel 8 TV or KUCB's Facebook Live page.

A rhythmic beating followed by soft clapping and cheering echoes through the Unalaska high school gym. It's the sound of about eight high schoolers hopping across the gym floor on their toes and knuckles — bodies hovering just inches above the ground. They're practicing the "seal hop," a Native Youth Olympics event. It's an event many athletes thought they wouldn’t have the chance to practice together this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
