Saturday's Diploma Ceremony
Chuck Caragianes
Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Good morning everyone,

This coming Saturday June 13th is Diploma Day!

Three groups of approximately 30 seniors each will arrive for the ceremony at three set times.  The groups are listed below.

Being on time and with the proper group is extremely important for all concerned.  All graduates should be in their Caps and Gowns in their cars with a tassel attached and hanging to the right.

The first group should arrive in the student parking lot no later than 8:30am sharp.  There they will be organized by volunteer school staff members for the procession to the front of the high school with the first diploma awarded at 9:00am.

The second group should arrive in the student parking lot no later than 10:00am sharp.  There they will be organized by volunteer school staff members for the procession to the front of the high school with the first diploma awarded at 10:30am.

The third group should arrive in the student parking lot no later than 11:30am sharp.  There they will be organized by volunteer school staff members for the procession to the front of the high school with the first diploma awarded at 12:00pm.

Upon arrival each graduate will receive 2 invitations for use by two guests at the Graduation Celebration on July 24th at 6:30pm at Alumni Field.  Please store them safely.

Under state guidelines for our ceremony it is essential that the following rules be followed on Saturday:

  • Each graduate’s car may hold as many people as desired.

  • There will be no bathrooms open at the school.

  • No graduate or guests in their car may congregate with others in any way.

  • Should anyone step out of their vehicle they must be masked and be outside the vehicle as briefly as possible.

  • When arriving at the front of MHS to receive their diploma the graduate and not more than two guests may leave their car to receive each diploma.  The graduate and two guests must be masked.

  • Mr. Caragianes and Mr. Caruso, both of whom will be masked, will lay a diploma and any awards on a presentation table for the graduate and then they must move at least 6 feet away.  The graduate and guests may then advance and pick up the diploma and any awards.

  • Upon receiving their diploma the graduate’s tassel should be moved from the right to the left signifying that they are now a graduate of Maynard High School!

  • The graduate and two guests may briefly take off their masks for a photograph with the diploma by the presentation table and then at a nearby site set up for another photograph.

  • Upon completion of the photographs the graduate and guests must return to their car and head out of Tiger Drive to make room for the next graduate.

  • All staff members in the presentation area will use hand sanitizer between graduates and sanitize any necessary surfaces.

As mentioned in previous communications, the above rules are required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts due to the COVID 19 pandemic and represent the greatest extent allowable for number of guests and opportunities for photographs without masks.  Staff volunteers will be at the ceremony to assist and to celebrate along with the graduates.  Please do not place these volunteers in a position where they have to act as rules enforcers.

Thank you for reading and I’m looking forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.

Best regards,

Mr. Caragianes
