The district is asking that anyone who feels sick to not attend the ceremony and recommends graduates and guests to wear masks, though graduated will be able to take them off while crossing the stage. School nurses will be at the gates doing wellness checks. However, they will not be checking for temperatures so the district is asking for people to do so before attending.

Students will receive two tickets for admission in an effort to limit the size of the crowd.

The graduation ceremonies will also be live streamed on the school district’s Facebook page.

Families are asked to hold off celebrations until they leave the school premises.
