A long line of school buses paraded through neighborhoods in the Lawrence High School attendance area Wednesday in honor of the school’s Class of 2020 graduates.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of school buildings and cancellation of in-person events, the high school had been scheduled to hold its graduation ceremony Wednesday. That ceremony is now scheduled for July. In the meantime, the Lawrence school district and First Student, the district’s bus service provider, organized bus parades to carry school board members, administrators, teachers and staff to celebrate students.
A similar parade honoring Free State High’s graduating seniors was held Tuesday morning.
