"In alignment with updated county guidance and based on discussions with our venues, we have revised our policy on number of guests at end-of-year events," the district said in a release.

The new guidance can be applied to other end-of-year celebrations such as continuation ceremonies and field days, the district said.

Children 2 years old and younger do not count toward the guest limit for these celebrations, according to Winna Maclaren with DPS.

The district said that its four-guest policy will be implemented consistently across all schools.
