The Park City High School Class of 2020 will be breaking all graduation traditions this year... and while that naturally brings some sadness with it – school officials are hoping senior can be cheered up somewhat by having a Once-in-a-Lifetime graduation experience.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the classic senior rites of passage, like prom, senior ditch day and the pomp and circumstance of walking across Dozier Field to accept a handshake and diploma are a thing of the past – at least for this year.

The tunnel under Kearns Boulevard is finished. It’s just in time for the start of Sundance. During this time period, school buses are rerouted to the back of the school campus, on Lucky John Drive. But about 300 kids are driving in and out of the high school lot every weekday and the principal is a little concerned.

Park City High School Principal Roger Arbabi is in a wait and see mode to determine if the new tunnel makes it safer for his students who are driving to school.
