Plans depend on approval from the Governor’s office of a waiver of the state’s 250-person occupancy maximum put in place by an executive order by South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster. However, the number will still be safe enough to practice social distancing at the event venues.
Graduations for all 14 high schools are currently planned to take place between June 1-4 at the arena. The Fine Arts Center will honor its seniors at the Greer High School gymnasium, Lifelong Learning’s graduation will be at Wade Hampton High School and Greenville Early College graduation will be at the Furman Younts Center.
The amount of tickets per student has not been set, according to a press release. That number will be determined by advice from medical experts, COVID-19 data and Bon Secours’ safety guidelines. Last year, each GCS student received two guest tickets to attend graduation.
Other safeguards will be announced leading up to the graduations and at the end of the school year.
