Social distancing has led to many schools in USA having to cancel their graduations or hold them online.
However, Kevin Carpenter, principal of Kennett High School, developed a novel idea for the end of year graduation.
He has planned to run his school’s graduation on a ski lift.
The high school will use the Cranmore Mountain Resort, which agreed to host the unique commencement – free of charge.
In June the ski lift at Cranmore will be packed with 174 graduating seniors. Parents have also been invited.
Students and parents will travel up the lift and collect their awards at the top and then make their way down.
