SCRANTON, Pa. — The Scranton School District says no spectators will be allowed at the district's upcoming graduation ceremonies.

West Scranton High School's graduation is still set for Tuesday, August 4, at 4 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.

Scranton High School will have two ceremonies on August 4: one at 6 p.m., one at 8 p.m.

Administrators will assign students to a ceremony.

Ceremonies will be recorded and streamed on the district's web site.
