Glacier Peak Senior Parade


Gabriella Wheeler, Staff Writer

Although we are not in school physically anymore, parents and students are trying to celebrate our senior year. The idea for a social distanced parade was born. An Instagram account @gphs2020 is advertising a parade event on June 5 from 12p.m.- 1p.m. This is an event sponsored by senior parents and organized to by the parent group and is not affiliated directly with the school or school district.

This is a drive by parade and seniors are encouraged  to wear their cap or gown, or dress in blue and white. Participants are encouraged to meet at the Safeway parking lot (5802 134th Pl. SE Everett, 98208) 15 minutes prior to start the lineup. The route of the parade leads through the neighborhoods of Gold Creek, The Falls and Silver Firs.

Volunteers and student created a directed route for the parade through neighborhoods near Willis Tucker Park. To ensure safety and following Governor Jay Inslee’s order, you can only have up to 2 student per vehicle. Also, students must be safe on the road and follow all laws, no speeding, burning out, halfway stop at a stop sign, etc.

People wanting to watch and acknowledge the graduates must remain on the sidewalk or lawn or in vehicles so there is no interference on the road. The local Fire Department, and Police Department will lead the parade. There will be a photographer to capture photos of this event.
