SHS Announces Drive Through Recognition and Graduation for Seniors

As the state of Kansas loosens restrictions we have worked with our senior class officers to organize and create two Class of 2020 celebratory events.

A drive through event is being planned for the high school parking lot on June 6 at 7:00 pm. Seniors will line up in front of the gymnasium in their cap and gowns and will be encouraged to decorate their “spot” for the event.

All members of the USD 247 community are invited to come out and celebrate with the Lancer Class of 2020.  Those participating are asked to enter the west entrance to the school from Hwy 400. Then they are to proceed through the parking lot and baseball/softball fields’ access road to exit onto Hwy 7. Everyone is encouraged to drive this loop multiple times to honor our seniors. This event will begin at 7:00 pm on June 6.

Lets make it a fun event. Feel free to decorate your vehicles, honk, wave and be crazy for the class of 2020. In order to meet social distancing requirements only the seniors and staff working the event will be allowed outside of their vehicles.

The Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony is being planned for the evening of June 20, beginning at 7:00 pm.  Please know that the date and details of this event are subject to change if state or local regulations are tightened.  Our priority is to honor the accomplishments of our students as long as we are able to follow social distancing guidelines.  Seniors and their parents will receive more detailed information concerning this event in the mail.

We look forward to celebrating the success of our students with you soon.
