Graduating high school students in Greenville County Schools will be able to invite more people to attend their graduation ceremony this year, according to a district email.
Social distancing will be observed at the ceremony. Each student will be able to invite between four to eight guests depending on the size of the high school. That means a smaller high school that will have a smaller number of students graduating can have eight tickets while a larger school with more students will be allowed four tickets.
Guests will be seated together and separated from each group by six feet in “pods,” according to the school district’s director of media relations, Tim Waller. Additional instructions related to masks, parking and arrival times will be released closer to the ceremony dates.
Those with COVID-19 or who are quarantining will not be allowed to attend. However, a live stream version of the graduations will be available online.
Tickets can be picked up by students who then will distribute them to guests. Ceremonies will take place from June 1-4 at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
