Kept apart for months, back together for a moment (or two).

With the world in the midst of an ongoing pandemic, the Coupeville High School Class of 2020 missed out on spending time together this spring.

But the Wolf grads came back together one final time Monday night, courtesy of the Blue Fox Drive-In.

While that event was just for seniors and their parents, now everyone can see the videos they watched together in their reunion and farewell.

Follow the link below and you’ll be able to see this year’s torch video, the senior slideshow, and a musical tribute from Karl Olsen and Deb Lund.

It was a chance to recapture a bit of what they lost.

The Coupeville High School Class of 2020 came back together Monday, face masks in place, to celebrate their accomplishments and have something akin to a senior trip.

The location was the Blue Fox Drive-In, where the Wolf grads watched their torch passing video and senior breakfast slideshow up on the big screen, in between some go-kart action and curly fries.

Poking his camera into the midst of the socially-distanced celebration was wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken, who delivers the pics seen here.

All pics are free to download this time around.

The Class of 2020 is taking the show to the big screen.

Coupeville High School graduates and their parents are invited to swing by the Blue Fox Drive-In Monday for Senior Night festivities.

Things start at 6 PM.

This event is in lieu of the senior trip, which was swept away by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Student ID’s will be checked, and non-grads will be driven back into the woods by taser-wielding robots. 

But seriously, this is just for the Class of 2020.

Grads are asked to bring their caps and tassel and decorate their cars.

The torch video and senior breakfast slide show will be shown, and there will be a chance to ride the go-karts, sign yearbooks, eat curly fries, and enjoy a movie.

All attendees must wear a mask and abide by social distancing guidelines set by the Blue Fox owners.

Coupeville’s Class of 2020 comes together one final time, thanks to a wee bit of digital fakery.

If you can’t take it, fake it.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic altered how graduation was held for the Coupeville High School Class of 2020, with some long-standing traditions relegated to the sideline.

But, thanks to the work of a couple of enterprising Wolf moms, the graduates did get a group photo.

Sort of.

Eileen Stone snapped individual shots of each CHS grad, then Karen Carlson stitched them together to create a virtual group portrait.

Live, on tape, it’s the 2020 Coupeville High School graduation.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic prevented CHS, or any school for that matter, from holding a normal ceremony, but everyone made do with what they had.

The diploma at the end of the 13-year school rainbow is still real, and, ultimately, that’s what matters most.

Since most people couldn’t watch graduation live, CHS taped the event and posted it online Wednesday afternoon.
