SOUTH BEND — South Bend Community School Corp. plans to celebrate its class of 2022 with three days of in-person graduation ceremonies.

The district will recognize its high school graduates from June 9 to June 11 this year at TCU School Field.

South Bend graduates have celebrated commencement for the past two years at Four Winds Field to adhere to coronavirus safety protocols.

In a news release this week, district officials said the corporation will continue to enforce safety measures recommended by the St. Joseph County Health Department to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure.

Those steps include limiting the number of guests each student can invite and requiring all in attendance to wear masks and use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting the venue.

A live stream will be available on the school corporation's YouTube page for those wishing to view the ceremonies remotely.
