The Dayton area will see a flood of 50-plus high school graduation ceremonies in the next three weeks. And while they still won’t be back to normal due to COVID-related attendance limits and masks, 2021 will be an improvement over 2020′s many online or canceled ceremonies.

The vast majority of local graduations run from Saturday through June 5. Greenon’s ceremony was early (May 7) due to construction starting on a new K-12 campus. The seven Dayton Public School events are late (June 25-28) because the district halted classes for weeks in November and December.
