On Tuesday, June 9, Wyandotte High School officially closed out the last of six graduation ceremonies for the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools. Each high school within the district held alternative celebrations at the Boulevard Drive-in in Kansas City, Kansas.
The graduations are a high point for the district as COVID-19 halted nearly all of the traditional events and gatherings such as prom and graduation that represent a rite of passage for high school seniors. But the pandemic didn’t suppress the district staff’s resolve to create an alternative approach for this milestone in education for the 2020 graduating class.
“A lot of my classmates were really bummed at first because we couldn’t have a traditional graduation,” said Wyandotte graduate, Damaris Mireless. “I thought it was really a good idea to host graduations at the drive-in. A lot of people were able to access the location and even if you weren’t, the school was able to provide transportation for families who couldn’t attend.”
