Prom, graduation events will happen at Livingston County high schools with some modifications – Livingston Daily

Fowlerville High School graduating senior Mallory Heath revels in the moment just before accepting her diploma at the school’s car processional through town Sunday, June 7, 2020.

As the unpredictable 2020-2021 school year comes to an end, Livingston County high school seniors can look forward to the last few opportunities they’ll get to spend with their classmates. 

High school students and staff have come up with several different ideas to celebrate end-of-the-year milestones such as prom and graduation while following public health guidelines.

According to the most recent orders from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, outdoor social gatherings are limited to 300 people and outdoor stadiums cannot exceed 20% capacity.

Fowlerville, Howell and Hartland High Schools are saying goodbye to the class of 2021 by revamping the drive-through graduation ceremonies they held for graduating seniors in 2020.

Fowlerville graduates will participate in a parade-style ceremony that spans the entire village.

“We received rave reviews last year,” Fowlerville High School Principal Bradford Lusk said. “This year, now that we’ll have more time to plan, we’re hoping to have more of a community feel.” 

Graduates will drive through Fowlerville with their caps and gowns and have their names read as they drive by.
