Mossdale School was graced with signs, smiles and social distancing Tuesday as school administrators and staff sent off their eighth graders with a drive-thru recessional through the parking lot.
The school's valedictorians were honored first, and the graduation car parade began at the campus entrance off McKee Road. Each vehicle was stopped midway through as soon-to-be Jaguars alums were recognized by Principal Susan Sanders before receiving their certificates from Vice Principal Inderjit Dhillon. Bob Wallace represented the Manteca Unified Board of Trustees to accept the the class.
Students then posed for photographs while remaining in the vehicles as teachers held up makeshift picture frames in front of passenger-side windows.
