Graduation events

Bainbridge High School in-person graduation is set for 4 p.m. June 12 at BHS Memorial Stadium.

Each grad is only allowed two family members so there can be proper social distancing for COVID-19. The event will be livestreamed for other family and friends to enjoy.

Baccalaureate for BHS graduates also will be outdoors this year. The event will take place June 6 at 3 p.m. at Bethany Lutheran Church. Baccalaureate is a student planned, faith-based ceremony sponsored by the interfaith council that recognizes high school graduation as an academic achievement and spiritual milestone said Mitchell Milander, part of the event’s planning committee.

Meanwhile, the Senior Parade for the BHS/Eagle Harbor High School through Winslow is planned for June 11 at a time to be announced.

The public is invited to the last two events.

Sing in school

Music specialist Katie Gibbs has announced that elementary school music has been approved for singing with surgical masks supplied by the Bainbridge Island School District.

But their voices are going to be muffled a bit. They will be placed over the masks students are already wearing in class.

Teachers have submitted plans that account for a 30 minute air exchange. Students will be 6 feet apart, and rooms have been approved with that spacing by an administrator. The safety precautions meet the standards set by the state Department of Health and have been approved by the school district.

Derelict boat

Washington State Ferries sent out an alert Monday morning canceling the 5:30 and 6:20 route from Bainbridge Island to Seattle because of a Coast Guard search and rescue.

WSF spokesman said a 20-foot derelict boat was seen floating in Puget Sound. A rescue boat was launched off the Suquamish Ferry around 6 a.m. to investigate if anyone was onboard. There wasn’t. The rescue boat then towed the derelict board to dock.
