posted Jun 10, 2020, 8:42 AM by Richard Barden

We are excited to celebrate our Class of 2020 with a car parade beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The parade will start at Methuen High School and will travel by each of the four grammar schools: Timony Grammar School, Comprehensive Grammar School, Tenney Grammar School, and Marsh Grammar School. Participating MHS seniors are required to register for the parade by completing this Google Form before 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17, 2020.   

Graduates are asked to arrive at the MHS Student Parking Lot by 9:30 a.m. on June 20. One vehicle per graduate will be allowed and students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who will be expected to operate the vehicle. Only participating seniors and MHS faculty and staff will be allowed to park at MHS. All parties must remain in their vehicles at all times. 

Participants are expected to practice safe and responsible driving. Seat belts must be worn at all times. Families wishing to decorate their vehicles should do so before arriving at the MHS Student Parking Lot. Decorations should not obstruct the driver's view. 

Friends, families, and community members may support our Class of 2020 by viewing the parade along the route. We are excited to have Mayor Neil Perry and members of the Methuen Police Department and Fire Department leading the parade with additional officers and firefighters stationed throughout the route.

For the safety of all involved, any person viewing or participating in the parade should follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask. Once the parade has passed, onlookers must disperse. Students and families should not congregate after the parade to comply with social distancing guidelines. The event will be held rain or shine.
