The California Department of Public Health Tuesday announced that Fresno and Kings counties have reached the metric required to enter the orange tier, which includes graduation ceremonies.

“We are thrilled that we can have our seniors together with their classmates in one ceremony. We know that what our students have wanted most is to be with one another in this milestone moment,” said Superintendent Eimear O’Farrell, Ed.D.

School officials say seniors will be seated spaced across their home stadium field instead of sitting side by side in risers. There will be a stage on the field that seniors will be called to and walk across to receive their diploma as their name is announced.
