HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Huntsville City Schools will celebrate graduation for all of its schools on June 25-26 at the Von Braun Center.
Plans have been enhanced to allow more guests while still allowing social distancing.
The district says that students will now be seated, walk across stage to receive their diplomas, and return to their seats for the remainder of the ceremony. Schools will provide students with four additional tickets allowing each student to have eight guests in attendance. Guests may remain at their seats for the entire ceremony.
