“We are quite encouraged that we can have all of our graduations in person with social distancing and with face masks at Amway Arena,” Jenkins said.

The school will also have a backup plan in place in the event that the Amway Center isn’t able to accommodate the dates needed.

“All of the graduations will happen in person with face masks at the Amway -- that’s where OCPS has the capacity and permission to have it there,” Jenkins added.

School officials have not announced graduation dates yet, although school officials say the dates have already been booked.
