At 5 pm, begin your route by turning left (HH turn right) to enter the circle marked on the map. Click on the link under the name of your school to see the route from your starting point or near your starting point. Please find time before the parade to view the route. Ignore any stops along the route. They are there so I could create the circle.
Please do not show up at a meeting place before 4:45pm if they are open. We do not want to interfere with business. Try to park away from the building so customers can have the spots closer to the building. If space is limited, look for a parking lot nearby.
We are not there to “gather” and socialize. Please take pictures and videos of each other from a safe distance. Pictures and videos can be shared for all to see on this page: https://www.facebook.com/hsvcs2020grads/.
