UPDATED: May 7, 1:27 p.m.

Hutto High School's in-person graduation ceremony, originally scheduled for May 29, has been shifted to June due to the Texas Education Agency's May 5 guidance on outdoor graduation ceremonies, the district confirmed May 7.

The ceremony is now scheduled for June 5 at Hutto Memorial Stadium, said Todd Robison, Hutto ISD's director of communications and community relations. June 6 has also been marked as a backup date for the ceremony. Graduation tickets have been limited to two per student, Robison added.
