Monday, May 4, 2020 | 8:47 AM

The Quaker Valley School District announced Sunday that a virtual commencement for the class of 2020 will be held this year.

In a post to the district’s website, officials also said they plan to hold a celebratory event for seniors “once it is deemed safe and permissible to come together in a large gathering.”

The virtual commencement ceremony will be available for viewing on the district’s YouTube channel at 7 p.m. June 4. Seniors are encouraged to wear their graduation regalia — cap and tassel, gown, and gold cord if applicable. The name of every senior will be announced and Superintendent Dr. Tammy Andreyko will direct seniors to turn their tassels and pronounce them graduated.

The district, with faculty and staff, plan to hold other special events and present gifts to seniors to close the school year.
