GRIDLEY, Calif. - Gridley High School is planning to honor its graduates with a special in-person ceremony this weekend, despite the coronavirus restrictions.
Omar Mosqueda is graduating from Gridley High, "I just want to make my family proud and that’s what they really wanted to see."
A post from the Gridley High School Facebook page says the school’s holding an event to honor some of the seniors this Sunday at the Guardian Building.
They will keep families 6 feet apart and encourage people to wear masks.
One parent told Action News Now she heard the school was even planning an in-person graduation.
"To not have it would be a shame you know because look it-- we can go everywhere right now why not have a graduation," said Eli Canals from Gridley.
We reached out to the school several times to confirm this, but the secretary told us the principal did not have a comment.
A few people we spoke with off-camera told us they have safety concerns about an in-person graduation.
Butte County Public Health put out a letter stating “in-person graduation is not allowed at this time… drive-in services only.”
Action News Now reached out to the school but we were unable to confirm if it is holding a graduation next weekend or just the baccalaureate ceremony this coming Sunday.
