For those who order a lunch from Chartwells, you will pick up your lunch at a designated place along the parade route. After the parade, either find a nice place to have lunch or go directly to Christ Church to receive your diploma and take a professional family photo provided by Cranbrook. Diplomas and professional photos will be available until 3:30 PM. We recommend that those near the front of the parade go directly to Christ Church to pick up a photo while those in the middle and back of the parade find a nice spot for lunch before heading to the church.
We regret that restrooms will not be available on campus, due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
If you choose to eat on campus, please practice strict social distancing protocols, wearing a mask if in close company and gathering in a group no larger than ten persons.
In order to protect the turf, please do not enjoy lunch on the Thompson Oval.
In order to receive your diploma and take a professional family photo provided by Cranbrook, return to the Christ Church Parking Lot in the same manner you arrived for the parade. You will be directed to the back of the line, which will move forward gradually as other families finish their photos. When you reach the designated position at the front of the line, have the graduate take the diploma from the specified table, and have your family pose in the designated spot. When the professional photographer is finished, please reenter your vehicle immediately and move your car forward as promptly as possible to make time and space for the next family.
To avoid crowding and mindful of social distancing requirements, we ask that you please do not take personal photos at this time.
