PORT ORCHARD – South Kitsap High School seniors will be able to enjoy an in-person graduation ceremony in June after all.

The 2020-21 graduating class commencement ceremony will be held at noon June 19 at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, home of the Rainiers minor league baseball team.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating seniors with an in-person ceremony. Our seniors will be able to receive their diplomas at home plate,” officials announced on the school’s Facebook page.

Seating for the ceremony will be limited by whatever local and state health regulations in effect June 19.

Ticket allocation is currently limited to two family members per graduating student. There will be assigned seating.

“We know there are many friends and family members that would like to attend the event in person, however these limitations are outside of South Kitsap School District control,” school officials said.

Organizers expect the event to be video-streamed to allow family and friends unable to enter the stadium to view the ceremony.

Attendees are asked to remain vigilant by wearing masks and complying with physical distancing standards.

Current graduation ceremony plans remain tentative due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19. Families will receive details on ticket allocation and seat reservations in the coming weeks.
