BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District Is officially cancelling all “live” graduations, normally scheduled for the Palm Beach County Fair Grounds.
From the School District:
This is the School District of Palm Beach County with more information about high school graduations.
As Superintendent Donald Fennoy stated in his letter to seniors and parents yesterday, the District is exploring other commencement options.
Yesterday’s announcement regarding graduations was not that they are cancelled outright, it was to inform parents and seniors that ceremonies will not be taking place at The South Florida Fairgrounds.
The District had a legal contractual agreement with the South Florida Fairgrounds to cancel the venue within thirty days of the first scheduled graduation.
Amid the current coronavirus pandemic, the District made a decision to cancel, based on the safety of students and staff who would be gathered indoors in a large group setting.
More information is forthcoming as district staff works closely with school principals and student government representatives regarding the potential for other commencement opportunities.
Thank you for your patience as the District determines how best to safely recognize the Class of 2020 for reaching this milestone in their academic career.
