After the official Coronado High School graduation ceremony was cancelled by San Diego County (due to health concerns), parents and students put together an unofficial ceremony that took place along the beach and Sunset park yesterday.
Social media captured the impromptu event:
The senior class at Coronado High School didn’t get a chance to have a real graduation so the students on their own decided to march down the street to the beach to put on their own ceremony! @CoronadoIsland @CoronadoCity pic.twitter.com/Yp7I5VISWq
