It'll be the first graduation ceremony of its kind.
But perhaps not the last.
On Friday, May 22, Calla High will be having a parade/drive-thru ceremony, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Manteca Unified School District continuation campus at 130 S. Austin Road — specifically, the school parking lot — will host the graduation parade.
According to Principal Dan Beukelman, the graduating seniors can pick up their cap and gowns along with their diplomas via drive-thru during this unprecedented event being held amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students will also receive their diploma, a personalized yard sign, free year book and any individual awards.
"Each student is highly encouraged to pick up their graduation items in their own vehicle — students are encouraged to decorate their vehicles," said the flier sent to the graduating seniors.
Added Beukelman: "However, students and parents are not allowed to get out of their vehicles during the parade."
