COLORADO SPRINGS — Seniors in Harrison District 2 can't walk across the stage just yet, so they're getting drive-thru graduation parades.

Seniors, families, and friends lined the parking lot at Sierra High School Thursday as staff cheered each student and presented them with mock diplomas.

Photos were taken, and each student received yard signs celebrating their accomplishment.

"Our parents and students have been absolutely wonderful and positive through everything. Obviously, this is not the graduation that any of us expected when we started this school year," said Sierra Principal Nichole Schurbon.

Plans are in place to have an official ceremony for the 160 graduates on July 25.

Students at Harrison High School will be honored Friday.
