Contributed by Cincinnati Public Schools

Cincinnati Public Schools Class of 2020 might not be able to celebrate graduation during the COVID-19 pandemic the way everyone imagined, but that doesn’t mean it cannot be fun. 

Join CPS for drive-through graduation parades.

How does it work?

  • Students put on their caps and gowns, grab enough family to fit in a car, and CPS will celebrate them.
  • All graduate swill drive to their celebration, and when they get to the front of the car line, they will:
  • Hear their names called over the loud speaker followed by yells and cheers from teachers and staff
  • Receive their diplomas, a yard sign and other goodies
  • If you can’t join the parade in person, celebrations with be live streamed on YouTube.
  • All participants will be expected to follow social distancing guidelines mandated by the Centers for Disease Control and the state of Ohio.
  • Participants are asked to remain in their vehicles throughout the duration of the ceremony.
  • Please be on the lookout for additional details from your schools, including arrival times, which will be alphabetical by last name.
