Officials said the ceremonies will follow the governor’s Phase 1 reopening guidance. They added facility capacity will be limited to 25%, which could mean fewer tickets per family. Personal protective equipment will be mandatory and must be worn at all times. They did not state whether that meant masks and gloves or just masks. All attendees will also have their temperature taken.

According to EBRPSS, all graduation activities could be subject to change if further health risks emerge.

Officials noted attendance for graduates is optional and EBRPSS is working to provide video recordings and/or a video live stream for those that cannot be present.

“EBRPSS High School principals have worked tirelessly, exploring all available possibilities, to recognize this momentous rite of passage,” officials stated in a written release.

The principals at high schools in the parish will pass on all additional details in the next few days.
