Lafayette Parish School System has announced plans regarding high school graduation. Ceremonies for all public high schools in the parish are set for July 9-11, 2020 at the Cajundome.

According to an update released on the LPSS website, the event will be an in-person commencement ceremony unless it is deemed not safe or is not allowed. If that would be the case, then a virtual ceremony would be held at each high school.

Here is the schedule:
