YOUR DIPLOMA P R E S E N TAT I O N Your Virtual Commencement event isn’t complete until you distribute diplomas and help your students get their time-honored picture with it in their cap & gown. We have safe and memorable ways to cap-off your Virtual Commencement experience.


D R I V E -T H R U P I C K U P Hold a drive-thru in your school parking lot to hand out student diplomas,  while retaining social distancing.  PICKUP CONSIDERATIONS: • • • •

Determine your date, time and place and communicate to parents and students. Instruct students to wear cap and gown. ​ Depending on class size, split up curbside pick-up locations alphabetically. ​ Set up one location for diploma pickup and another location with a set-up to take official pictures.


PA R A D E P I C K U P Take the drive-thru one step further and morph into a parade ceremony. Invite the whole community to celebrate. PARADE PICKUP CONSIDERATIONS: • • • • • •

Set up a date, time and place and communicate to parents and students. ​ Instruct students to wear cap and gown and decorate their cars for a parade across town. ​ Invite the community to stand outside (at safe distances) to cheer on the Class of 2020 as they drive by. Set up a videographer to capture the parade.   End by safely presenting diplomas into each graduate’s car. ​ Set up a location to take official pictures, with a photographer staying 6ft away. 


S TA G E P I C K U P Provide a graduation stage set where you can open the doors for graduates to come in, get presented their diploma, and take and an official picture. STAGE PICKUP CONSIDERATIONS: • Create a sign-up sheet with allocated dates and times. • Instruct graduates to wear cap and gown. • Keep groups to 10 or less people at any given time. • For safety, set-up diplomas to be presented without close interaction. • Set up a location to take official pictures, with a photographer staying 6ft away.


TA K E T H E P I C T U R E Communicate ahead to have graduates wear their cap & gown to take an official picture with their diploma. PICTURE CONSIDERATIONS:

• Identify a landmark or familiar location to take pictures (i.e. the school sign or class rock). • Instruct the photographer to stay at least 6ft from students and families taking pictures. • Graduates wear cap & gown to get their official picture with their diploma.​ • Share your pictures for inclusion in the Jostens Class of 2020 photo album.
