Virtual, drive-up graduation planned for Indian River schools

May 20, 2020

Graduation ceremonies at Indian River High School, Sussex Central High School and the Howard T. Ennis School will be a combination of virtual and drive-up events in 2020, school board officials decided May 18. 

In addition to hosting virtual online ceremonies that will feature photo tributes to each graduate and speeches from the class president, valedictorian and salutatorian, the schools will also host drive-up events in which graduating seniors will visit their schools individually to receive their diploma and have their photo taken in their caps and gowns. Please note that there will be a limit on the number of family members permitted to accompany each student to the drive-up event.

Dates for the drive-up graduation events are as follows:

Indian River High School – Wednesday, June 17

Sussex Central High School – Thursday, June 18

Howard T. Ennis School – Friday, June 19

Each school is formulating the details of its virtual/drive-up ceremony and will communicate the final plans to families in the coming weeks. For details, go to
