SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Governor Herbert and Utah State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson announced on Tuesday Utah schools would remain closed through the rest of the year, leaving high school seniors wondering just how they will be able to have their graduation ceremonies.

Jeff Haney, spokesperson for the Canyon’s School District, said they have been discussing how to handle high school graduations prior to the governor’s announcement as a precaution.

Canyons District, like other school districts around the state, are in the process of coming up with different solutions and those decisions are expected in the next couple of weeks.

Options right now range from a digital graduation to postponing the actual ceremony to a later date. All of which Haney said will be discussed in their upcoming meetings, along with how to handle fees associated with fees.

Additionally, Haney said they will be taking input from their community through their School Community Councils.
