SENIORS - Drive-Through Diploma Pick Up

Franklin High School is hosting a drive-thru diploma pick up for the graduating Class of 2020 on Friday, June 5, 2020 from 2:00 – 7:00 pm (time based on last name see below).  

Drive-in or drive-thru only services are permissible as long as all public health precautions and social distancing is maintained.  Graduates and their families will enter the student parking lot and weave their way through the lot up to the right-hand side of the stage.   Graduate and ONLY the graduate will exit the vehicle at a pre-determined spot on the right side of the parking lot near the small gym.

Because we have 648 graduates, and we want to avoid families having to sit for hours at a time in a car in the parking lot, we are assigning graduates specific times go through the procession, by alpha; however if you cannot come during your assigned time you may come between 2-3 PM.

2:00 - 3:00 pm - Schedule Conflicts

3:00 – 4:00 pm – Last names A – Ei

4:00 – 5:00 pm -  Last names Ej- Le
