DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Public Schools will be holding diploma parades for graduating seniors and providing virtual commencement ceremonies personalized for each school.
Meadowdale High School will be holding its graduation Saturday, June 6, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. It was postponed due to rain on Wednesday, June 3.
Belmont High School will have its diploma parade later that day from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The plan is for students to drive through a parade of teachers holding signs and cheering. At the end of the drive, the graduating senior will exit their vehicle, receive their diploma and have a professional photo taken.
The student and their family will then exit Welcome Stadium.
Only one car per graduate is permitted and the parade will happen regardless of weather conditions.
The district has pre-recorded commencement ceremonies, complete with speeches from classmates, the Superintendent and Board of Education, which will be provided to students along with copies of their graduation photo.
Half of students will arrive at the parade start time and the other half will arrive halfway through to ensure vehicles can safely navigate the parking lot.
