High school graduations have again been cancelled due to the pandemic.

"It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of our in-person graduations," a release from the School District of Lee County states. "The decision was made with the Florida Department of Health-Lee County and Hertz Arena. This was an incredibly hard decision but following the sharp rise in COVID-19 cases in our community and the health risk associated with large events, we believe this is in the best interest of our graduates and families.

"We are working on developing a drive-thru ceremony at each high school where the Class of 2020 can wear their cap and gown pick up their diplomas. More details will be forthcoming."
