• Dear Seniors & Class of 2020 Family Members:

     

    School District Five of Lexington & Richland Counties is committed to celebrating the Class of 2020. 

     

    Last year, School District Five Superintendent, Dr. Christina Melton, started a tradition of having seniors return to their elementary schools to walk the halls and be honored and celebrated by their former teachers and current elementary students. 

     

    To continue this tradition in a new way and observe social distancing guidelines, School District Five will host senior drive-thrus at middle schools during the week of May 18.  Similar to our senior supply pick-up, our Senior Parade 2.0 events will include music, photography, décor, and school staff cheering on the Class of 2020!

     

    Your former teachers, administrators and staff want to cheer you on! All seniors are encouraged to decorate their cars and participate, even if they joined the district as a secondary school student. Photos of seniors (and any family choosing to ride through with their senior) will be taken and posted on social media for families to enjoy.

      • Due to federal and state social distancing guidelines, students will not be permitted to get out of vehicles. 

      • Students should not meet or gather onsite or offsite before, during or after this event. Faculty and staff will assist to make sure social distancing practices are followed on school campuses. Students should not carpool.

    Celebrating our class of 2020 is important to families, to our schools and to our district. We look forward to celebrating our seniors at our Senior Parade 2.0 events and at our upcoming graduation ceremonies. Visit www.lexrich5.org/graduation for information on School District Five commencement events.
