Class of 2020 celebrations slated for next week

KUSD news release

Kenosha Unified is looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2020 at its Senior Celebration and Diploma Distribution events scheduled for June 11-15. These events will afford graduates the opportunity to partake in a celebratory car parade followed by crossing an outdoor stage.

The district understands that these events and the virtual graduations set to air at 5 p.m. on July 25, 2020, are not comparable to traditional graduation ceremonies, but hopes families and community members embrace what is being offered and join in the celebrations to help honor the Class of 2020 in a safe and healthy manner amidst the global pandemic.

All other friends, family and community members are kindly asked line the parade route only to cheer on graduates while practicing safe social distancing. We ask that guests avoid the staging area for health and safety of our graduates and staff. Graduates and their families participating in the parade are encouraged to decorate cars. To ensure the safety and well-being of all, we ask that only graduates exit vehicles near the stage to ensure social distancing is honored and to keep the parade safely moving.

We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2020!
