PCHS working with Deer Valley to Provide Graduates with Celebration

Park City High School is partnering with Deer Valley Resort to give the Class of 2020 a chairlift graduate celebration on Friday, July 31.

“Deer Valley has generously offered this opportunity and we couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Park City High Principal Roger Arbabi. “This will be an unforgettable experience for our students.”

“We were heartbroken that we were not able to celebrate our graduates this spring. Unfortunately, we had to wait to plan something for late summer to safely honor our graduates,” he said.  “It will be a Park City graduation backdrop no other PCHS graduate has ever had,” Arbabi said.

A schedule and more details will be released as soon as possible to allow for families to make plans.

“Deer Valley very much looks forward to celebrating the Park City High School Class of 2020 this summer with a well-deserved chairlift commencement ceremony on the mountain,” said Deer Valley Resort President and COO, Todd Shallan. “We are happy to be able to work with their school administrators and be a part of recognizing these students and their achievements through such a unique and memorable experience.”

In addition to the Deer Valley event, PCHS graduates have the opportunity to take photos at Dozier Field today and Saturday (May 29 & 30) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Three different photo backdrops will be available on the football field for graduates and their families. To ensure safety protocol, graduates have signed up in advance so that no more than five at a time are on the field with their families. High school staff will be on hand to cheer for their students.

In a few weeks, graduates will be sent a Senior Tribute video. Graduates are uploading their pictures for this video highlighting their high school experiences. The PCHS Student Council provided a keepsake embroidered blanket that has been distributed to each senior in the Class of 2020. The Student Council is still accepting donations here.

Principal Arbabi and the PCHS staff thank the Park City community during this time. Due to their generous support, each senior received a sign in their yard and other recognition. “Thank you for inspiring them to finish the school year strong,” he said.
