Graduates receive diplomas, yearbooks
Complying with all aspects of rules surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic affecting this country, Parkland High School had a drive-through diploma and yearbook pickup at the high school on June 10.
Many of the graduates wore their caps and gowns, even though they were confined to their vehicles.
Following the pickup in the circle, graduates were permitted to have their photos taken by a professional photographer near the entrance to the pool.
