Hillsborough County Schools to hold in-person graduation ceremonies

Hillsborough County

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Hillsborough County Public Schools confirmed with 8 On Your Side Wednesday that the district will be holding in-person graduation ceremonies for the class of 2021.

Graduation ceremonies will still take place at the Florida State Fairgrounds as normal in late May and early June.

Each graduate will be allowed two guests, according to HCPS. The district will also livestream the ceremonies for those unable to attend.

Guests will receive paper tickets to the ceremonies. The tickets will be pre-assigned to the north or south entrance of the Expo Hall and to specific seating areas to reduce congregation of guests.

Masks will be required at all graduations, as well as social distancing.

School officials are continuing to work with county officials on safety protocols.

Below are the current dates and times of all Hillsborough County high school graduations. They are subject to change, however, as the district wants four hours in between all ceremonies to allow for a thorough cleaning:
