With Governor Cuomo giving the okay for drive-in and drive-thru graduation ceremonies, many high schools in the Capital Region are beginning to make decisions on what to do for seniors.

That includes Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park.


Seniors lined up Friday to collect their cap and gown.

The school recently announced its plan for graduation - keeping in mind not only the safety of students amid the pandemic, but also what they envisioned for a graduation.

Principal Ron Agostinoni announced the intricate plan in a video.

The class usually has graduation at SPAC - but he said social distancing with so many students and their family wasn't possible.

Learn more about what the new plan entails, by watching the video of Emily DeVito's story.
