Livingston Parish school officials have finalized plans for 2020 graduation ceremonies.

The graduation ceremonies are scheduled as follows:

Southeastern Louisiana University was scheduled to host six of the parish's nine ceremonies, but is not available for high schools at this time. Walker High School's gym has a capacity of 2,200 people which will accommodate 1,100 people if limited to a 50% capacity due to the coronavirus social distancing measures.

That gym is also equipped with live video broadcasting equipment. The three ceremonies not held at Walker are all scheduled outdoors so are subject to weather. If necessary, each school will contact their respective parents and seniors about a change of plans.
