High School Class of 2020 Drive-In Celebration
When: May 26, 2020
Where: Parking Lot at Salem
Time: 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Event for Salem’s high school graduates and their families will take place in the parking lot.
How will we maintain a safe environment for all?
- Families will be directed to park in an assigned parking spot, distant from other cars.
- Families will be asked to practice social distancing with other families. This includes playing sports, hugs, etc.
- Families are asked to wear masks while in the parking lot.
How will it work?
Each family is allowed one vehicle. As you pull up, you will park in one of the assigned parking spots (look for Sue and Pastor Luke), and you will be given your gift bag. Inside you will find snacks as well! After, you will be able to set up “camp” by setting out chairs close to your car, blankets in the back hatch of your car, etc. You may also choose to stay in your car – no judgment (the AC will probably be nice). Please note that you MUST maintain distance between your family and others.
On Wednesday, you will be sent an email that has the link for the YouTube Premiere at 6:45 p.m. You will be able to watch on your own devices. Please note that WIFI will be spotty in the parking lot, so you may need to use data. If you need WIFI, we can try our best to get you close to the church building. We’ll watch the video together, take time to pray for our students, and then send you off!
*Please note that the sun will be setting and the parking lot will be warm! Bring an umbrella or sunshade. Also, you may want to bring headphones for your device or a small speaker so you can hear the interviews.
What about bathrooms?
Great question! The church building will not be open. There is a porta-potty at the nearby park for emergencies. I would say, “plan ahead.”
Please direct any questions to Pastor Luke Korthuis, Lkorthuis@salem-covenant.church. Thank you for helping us to create a safe environment to celebrate our seniors!
