When the graduate nears the graduation point, a runner will take the windshield wiper sign to the name reader.
Graduate Preparation Zone
Pay attention to signs for directions.
Station 4: Graduation
Wait for the sign to show the graduate may exit the vehicle. The student will walk to the graduation point. The student‘s name will be called as they walk to receive a diploma cover and photo opportunity. The student will return to the vehicle immediately. The vehicle will then join the recessional line.
Station 5: Recessional
Watch for signs and move to the graduate pick up spot. All vehicles must make a right onto Poplar Creek Rd upon exiting graduation.
Note from Vance County Schools: We are excited about graduation! It is our hope that seniors will celebrate by decorating their cap or even their vehicle. As a reminder, no open-air vehicles are permitted (convertibles, bikes, open-top jeeps, etc) and no one will be permitted to ride in the back of a pickup truck. Only one vehicle is permitted per graduate.
As you proceed through the graduation line-up, you will see signs giving instructions. We ask that you pay close attention to ensure a smooth process. Everyone must remain in their vehicle throughout. The graduate will be informed when they are able
to exit the vehicle. We also ask that you avoid loud music and horn honking.
We cannot wait to celebrate the Class of 2020!
