Celebrating Our New Start Class of 2020

Congratulations to the New Start High School Class of 2020. Our seniors have worked hard, and they deserve to be celebrated. Although a traditional graduation ceremony is not possible due to the pandemic, we have a creative way to celebrate commencement. 

Seniors and families will be scheduled to rotate through a drive-thru graduation ceremony at New Start High School on Thursday, June 11. Wearing their cap and gown, each student will receive their diploma cover, get a professional photo taken, and be cheered on by teachers and staff with appropriate social distancing. Students will also receive senior awards, yearbook, graduation programs and Class of 2020 memorabilia.  

It will be different than a traditional commencement with the whole class together. However, everyone will have a chance to be honored in front of their families, see the teachers who have supported them, and be at their school one last time.

Cap & Gown

If your student ordered caps, gowns and/or announcements, materials will be sent to you through the mail.


Students will be scheduled for a specific time. Please stay tuned for more instructions.
