High School grad's to experience traditional ceremony

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - After much consideration, Yuma Union High School District says it will hold an in-person graduation ceremony for each of its schools. Students not only get to walk for graduation, but they also get to have up to four loved ones in the stands.

While each student will receive up to four tickets, each school will have their own ticketing and admissions process.

"Every campus will be a little bit different. But generally speaking, your graduate will be given a certain number of tickets and they’re also being asked the names of the people that they would like to attend. And then when you get to graduation, you will need to provide your ticket as well as an I.D. That’s really important," says Kofa High School Assistant Principal Melissa Ellegood.

Each guest will have to fill out a COVID questionnaire, wear a mask, and social distance from individuals not in their group.

All graduation events will also stream online so that those who cannot physically attend can watch from a distance.
