The Riverview Learning Center
Class of 2020 Graduation Information


On Monday, June 8, 2020, the Riverview Learning Center will be hosting a Commencement Car Processional for the Class of 2020. A message from Principal John Bomar to Riverview Learning Center seniors and families follows.

Dear RLC Families of Graduating Seniors:

Given the state of Washington’s guidelines on graduations, we have decided that the best way to honor our students is with the “Drive Through” Procession allowed by OSPI and the Washington State Department of Health, clarifying how the Governor Inslee’s Rules apply. This option does allow students to get out of the house and participate in an event where they can see their classmates and families, from their vehicles*.

This option comes with several requirements set out by the WSDH which we have adapted for our site at RLC.

The rules:

Now for the fun stuff:

Students, we know this is not what all of you anticipated for your graduation. It is not what any of us; parents, staff, friends, family, wanted for you. Believe us when we say our staff enjoy the graduation celebration every bit as much as you do. Over your three, four, or sometimes more years we have worked with, sweated with, and cried with you as you have accomplished this milestone. So, although this feels like a bit of a loss for all of us, we believe this will give us a chance to celebrate your accomplishment together. We hope that each of you will take this opportunity to let us honor you and see you graduate.

We know one thing for sure, this graduation procession will be unforgettable as this is a very, very, unique time in the history of the world.

*If you know a family who has a graduating senior and cannot participate because they do not have a car, please contact Mr. Bomar or Mrs. Volpentesta.

Washington State Department of Health Guidelines:

The Washington State Department of Health is very specific on what is and is not allowed. Some of their requirements which we had to consider are below:
