Today, Orange County Public Schools announced graduation dates for the Class of 2021, with preliminary plans to hold all high school graduation ceremonies in person at the Amway Center. This schedule is based on the availability of the Amway Center during the NBA playoffs or Solar Bears games, as well as safety conditions due to COVID-19. 


Safety precautions will include, but are not limited to, the mandatory wearing of face masks, social distancing, limited ticketing (exact number per graduate to be determined) and strict arrival, departure and stage procedures. All guidelines and protocols are being developed in conjunction with the Florida Department of Health in Orange County and the Amway Center.
