2021 Graduation Update - Inclement Weather Protocols (6/2/2021)

The following message was sent to all FBISD High School Parents, Guardians and Staff on Tuesday, June 2, 2021.

 

Dear Parents and Guardians of Graduating Seniors, and FBISD Staff,

 

With an uncertain weather forecast this week, we want to provide you with information on how to proceed in the event of inclement weather during your child’s 2021 graduation ceremony date and time.

 

The District’s ceremonies are outdoors and will take place in the event of rain showers as long as they are not accompanied by potentially hazardous conditions such as heavy downpours, street flooding or lightning.

 

If adverse weather conditions warrant it, the start time for some ceremonies could be delayed or the event could be rescheduled to a later date. The District will steadfastly monitor conditions and provide up to the minute updates on its website.

 

Parents, students and guests are urged to check the District’s website regularly prior to graduation ceremonies. Please click on FortBendISD/graduation.

 

In the event of rain, graduation guests should be prepared to bring umbrellas or other protective rain gear. We also suggest bringing a towel to wipe down any wet seats or plastic to cover bleachers.

As a reminder, masks will not be required. Social distancing of 3 feet will be in place for graduates and speakers on stage at the ceremonies. Signs will also be posted in the audience to encourage attendees who do not reside in the same household to sit 3 feet apart.

 

Keeping students, parents and staff safe is of the utmost importance in Fort Bend ISD at all times.
