After announcing it planned to hold a drive-thru graduation ceremony for high schools, Lincoln Public Schools is now looking at the possibility of in-person ceremonies.

LPS Superintendent Steve Joel said in statement Tuesday afternoon LPS is “working out details” for modified in-person ceremonies for all six LPS high schools. The ceremonies would be spread out on July 24-26 at Pinnacle Bank Arena, Joel said in the statement.

“We appreciate the comments and questions regarding the announcement last night on our initial graduation plans,” he said. “Our staff has been working for weeks on tentative plans based on the directed health measures prior to June 12. After hearing the Governor’s new health measures that were released yesterday afternoon, we had extensive conversations with the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department this morning.”

More information on in-person graduation ceremonies is expected to be released during the Mayor’s press conference at 3:30 p.m. In addition to changes in graduation plans, LPS says it will be releasing the tentative framework for the reopening of schools on August 12.
