I am writing to share information about Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement today accelerating the ‘MI Vacc to Normal’ plan and what this means for graduations.

As of June 1, capacity limits will be lifted for outdoor events. Additionally, indoor capacity limits will increase to 50%. As of July 1, the state will no longer limit capacity at indoor or outdoor gatherings.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) will be releasing an updated epidemic order on Monday, May 24 to reflects these changes.

While we are awaiting the official MDHHS epidemic order and seeking further guidance and direction from the Kent County Health Department, we are confident that this means we will be able to expand the limited number of tickets available for graduations.

We are working to update our graduation plans and will share details with students, families, and staff by early next week. Thank you for your continued patience, understanding, and support.
