LONDONDERRY — Senior moments continue throughout the summer as Londonderry High plans a graduation event to help round out a list of activities and safely distanced moments to help the class of 2020 enjoy their final high school time.

Members of the graduating class recently picked up their caps and gowns, received special gifts and also took home the photo banners that were hanging along Mammoth Road recently, courtesy of the Londonderry Rotary Club.

The proposed upcoming schedule of senior events includes not only a Baccalaureate service/graduation ceremony, but also a safely distanced senior social event and possible outdoor prom.

The graduation ceremony is slated for Wednesday, July 29, 7 p.m. on the high school football field with a rain date of July 30.

There is a long list of rules and special regulations in place to govern the event, to make sure families, students and staff are all kept at safe distances during the ongoing pandemic.

The class of 2020 will be presented in alphabetical order with two sections of 15 seats in each row, with 12 rows in each section, and a 10-yard middle aisle in between, according to a school report. This stretches the rectangular seating for the Class of 2020 and high school teachers from the 15-yard line to the 45-yard line on each half of the football field.

Families will be able to find seating on either side of the end zone on the field. Families are also asked to bring chairs and to sit safely distanced from other families.

The ceremony will include speeches and other announcements of student honors and diplomas will be presented safely to graduates.

Ceremonies will also be live streamed and broadcast on the local cable television channel. At the conclusion, Londonderry police will be on hand to help with traffic flow out of the high school area.

More information on the senior schedule of events was scheduled to be included in the next school board agenda this week.
