Graduation date, location set for NHS

Nacogdoches High School will hold its graduation ceremony at 8 p.m., Friday, May 28, at Dragon Stadium.

Each graduate will be provided with 10 guest tickets for the ceremony, which would allow for attendance at Dragon Stadium to be 50 percent of stadium capacity. Guest tickets will be distributed to graduates during the required graduation practice held the day of the ceremony.

For now, everyone attending the ceremony will be asked to wear a mask and there will be multiple kiosks of hand sanitizer available throughout the stadium. (The mask requirement could change based on recommendations from Texas Education Agency.)

Once inside Dragon Stadium, guests will be asked to social distance between family groups; both sides of the stadium will be available for seating.

“This is as close to a normal graduation exercise we could have, considering the circumstances of the past year,” said Nacogdoches ISD Superintendent Dr. Gabriel Trujillo. “It combines the best intentions of keeping everyone as safe as possible yet allowing for a return to a ceremony with friends and family in attendance.”

The ceremony will be shown on the video scoreboard at Dragon Stadium as well as livestreamed on the internet.

In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony would be moved to 8 p.m., Saturday, May 29. If further rescheduling is required, a decision would be made by 10 a.m. May 29.
