LA County Officials: Absolutely No “Drive By Grad Ceremonies”
As the school year comes to an end and students plan to celebrate their graduation, Los Angeles Health officials are warning against drive-in graduation celebrations.
While health officials in Los Angeles are hopeful that students will be able to have some type of graduation ceremonies later in the summer, they are warning students at this time to stick to all virtual celebrations.
“I think it’s unfortunate that this is happening during a pandemic because we are asking that all graduations be virtual only.
Our health officer order prohibits, as does the state’s, any events from happening and even those car drive-in graduations that folks would like to have are considered events. So right now, there can be nothing but a virtual graduation.”
– Barbara Ferrer, county public health director
As the school year comes to a close, superintendents are working with health officials to make plans for how students can return to the classroom in the fall.
Some options are a hybrid model which would include a combination of classroom and distance learning. The other option is putting students into units and they would not be allowed to interact with any student that was not in their assigned unit.
It appears no matter what option is chosen students will have to adjust to a new normal of learning.
