GREENSBORO – Guilford County Schools has announced the schedule of “drive-thru” graduation events at high school campuses in June.

The district also plans in-person graduation ceremonies July 22 through 28, as safety recommendations allow, according to a news release.

The drive-thru celebrations begin June 2 with middle colleges and academies. Traditional high schools will celebrate through June 16, most holding their events over two days, the release said.

Gateway Education Center and Haynes-Inman Education Center leaders will go to individual graduates’ homes instead of participating in the “drive-thru” recognitions, the release said.

The school system is coordinating with law enforcement officials to help minimize disturbance to the surrounding communities, the release said, and families will receive additional guidance from their principals.

“This has been an eventful year,” said Dr. Tony Watlington, chief of schools, in the news release. “While this is not the graduation plan we expected at the start of the year, it’s one I hope will honor our graduates while still making sure we keep our staff and students safe from harm.”
