Commencement parade Sunday at the school

North Iowa High School will hold a closed ceremony for Commencement on Sunday, June 14, as it seeks to honor the Class of 2020 while maintaining social distancing to keep students and their families healthy. Each senior will only be able to bring four guests to the ceremony scheduled for Sunday at 2 p.m., but other community members will have a chance to congratulate the graduates at a drive-thru parade following the ceremony.

The parade is tentatively scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., and it will be held weather permitting. Graduates will line up along the east side of the school building, six feet apart, and the North Iowa Education Association will provide each of them with a basket for cards. Families and community members are invited to drive by the school to wave and leave cards for the graduates. People are asked not to shake hands.

Anyone not attending Sunday’s Commencement ceremony will still have the opportunity to view the ceremony online, as the school will be live-streaming and recording the event. A link to the video will be posted on the school’s website at The school will also be live-streaming and recording the Awards Night and Baccalaureate for the seniors this Wednesday, June 10, beginning at 6 p.m.

The 39 members of the North Iowa High School Class of 2020 are featured in a special graduation section inside this week’s Tribune.
