KILLEEN, Texas – The Killeen Independent School District has canceled all plans for an in-person graduation ceremony.
This comes due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases across Texas, and to maintain the health and safety of graduates, their families, and Killeen ISD staff.
According to the district in a statement released Thursday afternoon, capacity restrictions simply do not provide the ability to use the Bell County Expo Center at this time. They hoped the delay would have led to a more traditional ceremony – however, current circumstances have not provided this window of opportunity.
Virtual graduations can be viewed at www.killeenisd.org/grad1920.
The district says this decision was not made lightly, but they feel they must keep the health and safety of the Killeen community at the forefront.
