2020 Seniors & Graduation

Virtual Commencement Ceremony

Graduation Day Activities: June 11

1 p.m.: Our Class of 2020 Graduation video will premiere at 1 p.m. so families can watch the ceremony together at home -- or anywhere in the world if you’d like to share with others. A link to the YouTube video, which is about 50 minutes long, is posted above and will be emailed to families. Here is the 2020 Commencement Program as a PDF.

2:30 to 4 p.m.: We invite Gibson Ek seniors along with their immediate family to come to Gibson Ek to receive their diploma. Please wear your cap and gown. You may arrive any time between 2:30 and 4 p.m.

We will hold the drive-up diploma pickup near the loop in front of the school to make it easy and safe for those arriving in cars. We are implementing a contactless diploma pick up so students will be able to get out of their car and walk to a table to pick up their diploma. We are fortunate that we’re able to do this because of our small size. Parents will need to stay in their cars and can take pics from the windows or sunroof -- and staff will take photos that will be shared with families. Once the senior has picked up their diploma, we ask that families leave campus so we can have time to see each senior.

Safety Guidelines: Gibson Ek staff will be following social distancing guidelines, wearing masks, and washing our hands often.  Any staff who is feeling ill will not be in attendance.  We ask families to help us maintain a safe environment for all by following these guidelines:

  • Please stay 6 feet or more away from anyone who is not in your family.
  • Stay in your car if you ever find yourself waiting in line to get the diploma.
  • Refrain from getting out of cars to take pictures with friends.
  • Bring only your immediate family to pick up your diploma. If this means driving two cars, then please be sure to pull up together.
  • We encourage everyone to wear masks while on campus and while the graduate picks up their diploma. Graduates may prefer to not wear a mask for their graduation picture.
