Class of 2020 Events

For this year’s graduating class, the COVID-19 outbreak has meant the cancellation of our traditional graduation celebrations and ceremonies. However, we are committed to ensuring that the Orcas Island High School class of 2020 is celebrated and honored as only our community can do. While this year’s graduation will be different, it is important to note that graduation is about more than walking across the stage to collect a diploma. On Orcas Island graduation is a celebration of academic and personal achievement, it marks the beginning of the next phase of life for our graduates and it is always a celebration of family and community.

Graduation Community Vehicle Procession, June 13 5:30PM

Following the virtual ceremony, the graduates will receive their diplomas at the school. At 5:30 pm, the graduates will assemble in personal vehicles to begin their graduation procession through Eastsound where the community will have the opportunity to bestow their Viking Pride upon them. Consider it a virtual walk across the graduation stage.

The route has been set to allow for community members to safely stage themselves along the roads with parking at multiple locations. We ask that everyone spread themselves out along the route in such a way that maintains safe distancing and safe traffic flow for graduates, spectators and visitors alike.

These are unusual times but they do not diminish the accomplishments of our graduates: quite the opposite in fact. Please join us in continuing the tradition of Orcas Island is honoring the accomplishments of our students and their families. Following the virtual ceremony, the graduates will receive their diplomas at the school. At 5:30 pm, the graduates will assemble in personal vehicles to begin their graduation procession through Eastsound where the community will have the opportunity to bestow their Viking Pride upon them. Consider it a virtual walk across the graduation stage.
