Parents decorate doors for high school seniors missing graduation amid pandemic

Doors are now accessorized with jerseys, instruments, academic awards and more.

Families are decorating their porches and doors to celebrate the high school seniors who are missing graduation, prom and other milestone events as a result of stay-at-home orders amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.

"[My daughter], she's devastated," Pool told "Good Morning America," of her 17-year-old, Katelyn Pool. "They're getting ready for this new chapter and some of them, they might not see each other again."

"I thought, 'What a great way to give seniors the recognition they deserve?'"

Doors across Fresno are now accessorized with athletic jerseys, instruments, cheer poms, academic awards, medals and senior portraits.

Senior Miranda Jones told "GMA" she's sad she won't be able to close out her final high school year with friends.

"If I would’ve known March 13 was the last day of school, I would’ve taken pictures and hugged everyone a little tighter," she said. "Decorating our doors was a way to connect all of us together, and to remind everyone that we are all in this together."

Pool said she's collecting photos of doors to incorporate into a digital album for families.
