Instead of graduating on Sunday, May 23, it’ll be on Wednesday, June 2, which is the day Ohio will be lifting it’s COVID-19 rstrictions.

Niles Schools said Friday the change was made because of Governor DeWine’s decision to lift indoor capacity limits.

The June 2 graduation will now be held at Warren’s Packard Music Hall.

In a statement, Niles Schools said, “The decision to move the graduation date allows more people to witness our seniors accomplish this outstanding achievement.”

Ticket restrictions have also been lifted.
