RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The countdown is almost over for 2021′s graduating seniors. Richmond Public School District is hosting all of their graduation ceremonies at The Diamond, the time depending on the senior’s school.

Each student received eight tickets for the graduation ceremony, and if loved ones are unable to make it there is a live stream available to watch. Another big change for this year is physical distancing and mask-wearing is only required for those who are unvaccinated.

All those attending are asked to make their way over the Blue Section, resorting to the Green Lot if overflow becomes a problem. Guest seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be permitted in both the lower and upper bowls. Seating behind 1st and 3rd bases will be reserved for graduates.

NOTE: Ceremonies for Armstrong High School and Richmond Community High School have been rescheduled due to weather forecasts in the area.
