Ocean Springs High School class of 2021 graduation to be held at Coast Coliseum
OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss (OSSD) — The Ocean Springs School District Board of Trustees has elected to host the Class of 2021 graduation ceremony at Mississippi Coast Coliseum after Governor Tate Reeves lifted the guidelines for indoor events.
Governor Reeves’s latest executive orders will allow for a full graduation ceremony at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum with the entire class of 2021 in attendance. A survey of the senior class was conducted following the new orders, with 70 percent of the graduating class voting for traditional coliseum graduation over one at Greyhound Stadium as previously planned.
The maximum number of attendees will be determined by the Governor’s executive order at the time of graduation. The total number of allowed attendees will then be divided by the number of graduates, which will determine the number of guests each graduate will receive.
Graduation is scheduled for May 27th at 7 p.m. More detailed information regarding the Class of 2021 graduation will be provided as it becomes available.
