SACRAMENTO, Calif. (WTRF) – A graduation photo is causing a lot controversy after a large group of students packed in for a photo without masks or social distancing.

Students had their graduation photo taken last Sunday, standing side-by-side sporting their caps and gowns.

I thought it was great that the community is coming together to see how they can celebrate us.

Parents and graduates defying state and county orders, organized a group photo to keep tradition.

If they think they are safe enough to be out there, than that is fine by me.

However, not everyone agrees.

It’s a cute idea but not necessarily in this time. People should be at home social distancing so this thing doesn’t keep going around.

The Class of 2020 has made huge sacrifices. But getting together to take a class photo has the potential to undo all of those sacrifices.

Dr. Aimee Sisson, County Health Officer

The school district says it was not involved in the event and has organized other events, such as a virtual graduation ceremony, that follows social distancing guidelines.
