Cherry Creek School District planning for in-person graduations this year

The district said plans may change based on health and safety guidance.

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) announced it plans on holding in-person graduation ceremonies in 2021.

The district said graduations will be held at Stutler Bowl in early June. The stadium, which is on the campus of Cherry Creek High, is located at 4700 S. Yosemite St. in Greenwood Village.

The district said attendees will have to follow all health and safety guidelines that are enacted at that time. CCSD said that will likely include masks or face coverings, a limited number of guests per graduate and physically-distanced seating. The district also warned that the plans could change based on health and safety guidance.
