2020 Edwin Parr Graduation Ceremony

Group 1: 12:30 pm

Group 2: 2:30 pm

Date:  Saturday, September 26, 2020

The administration of Edwin Parr and the grad committee understand that this has been a trying time for graduates and their families.  It was our hope that by postponing the graduation ceremony until September, a traditional ceremony would have been possible.  However, a traditional ceremony is not possible. The administration, in consultation with the grad committee, has made the decision to run graduation in the following manner:

  • Graduates will ride in a vehicle (6 person max) from the southern student parking lot around through the staff parking where the student will exit the vehicle.  A volunteer will be positioned at the drop point.

  • The graduate will walk along the sidewalk (where they were dropped off) around to the back door of the gymnasium.

  • After dropping the grad off, the vehicle, with the remaining 5 guests, will drive around to the back south west door of the gym.  Once the graduate reaches this door they will meet their 5 guests and all enter the gym, as a group. The graduate will walk a specific route that leads them up onto the stage to receive their diploma, any awards they have won and a picture with Mr. Nolan.  

  • Guests in the gym will be directed to a designated area where they can watch and take pictures if they wish.

  • Once the graduate walks off stage, their guests join them and exit the North west door of the gym. They are to get back into their vehicle and drive out the North bus entrance.

Graduates will be divided into 2 separate groups alphabetically based on the number planning to attend. The first group will stage at 12:30 pm.  The first grad drop off will be at 1:00pm.  Staff will guide vehicles and graduates.  Each grad, along with up to 5 guests in their vehicle can invite 1 other vehicle who will be permitted to park in the designated spectator areas of EPC parking lot.  All visitors must remain in their parking spot for the duration of their grad group and must remain by their vehicle.  The second group will stage at 2:30 pm and begin the same process at 3:00 pm. Important to note: the guest vehicle must leave after their grad group is done in order to allow room for the second guest group to park.

Important to note: the portion of graduation that takes place inside the gymnasium will be live streamed so people may watch via their devices in vehicles or at home.  

The only vehicles allowed on property for graduation will be the grad vehicle, their guest vehicle and school staff.

School protocols must be followed. The grad family group must be wearing masks when entering the gym. The grad will not have to as once in the gym they will be walking alone.  All participants and spectators must follow the AHS and Division guidelines.

All Graduates that are planning to attend need to confirm by phone or email to Mr. Morrison or Mrs. Holdis. Grad fees must be paid prior to the deadline. The deadline to have this completed is 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 15.
