Other details, such as location and number of family members who can attend the ceremony given pandemic restrictions, are still in the works. We will share that information as soon as possible, along with how to watch the ceremonies live online. 

TPS will continue to follow state and local guidelines on health and safety. That means everyone attending a graduation ceremony will need to wear a mask and maintain six feet of distance from people outside of their household.
