Wearing a cap and gown and graduating in front of family is a treasured memory throughout life. Humble ISD is committed to providing a graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. While graduation cannot be held Saturday, May 23, at NRG Stadium, they are planning to hold graduation in July if permitted. Students will be contacted about curbside pickup of caps and gowns in the weeks ahead. The Balfour plant that supplies caps and gowns shut down in order to keep their workers safe at home. This has caused the delivery of graduation items to be delayed. Humble ISD is working with Balfour to obtain the items. Prom and Senior Picnic remain postponed. These activities will not be held in May due to the governor’s executive order regarding schools.
Here are the graduation dates as set by Humble ISD:
Option 1: Humble ISD plans to hold graduation indoors at NRG if permitted Saturday, July 25 as follows: Kingwood 9 a.m.; Kingwood Park 12:30 p.m.; Summer Creek 3 p.m.; Humble 5:30 p.m.; Atascocita 8 p.m.; and Quest Monday, July 27 at 7 p.m. Humble Civic Center.
Option 2: Humble ISD plans to hold graduation outdoors at Turner Stadium if indoor gatherings are prohibited and outdoor gatherings are allowed as follows: Kingwood 7 p.m. Monday July 20; Kingwood Park 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 21; Summer Creek 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 22; Humble 7 p.m. Thursday, July 23; Atascocita 7 p.m. Friday, July 24; and Quest 9 a.m. Saturday, July 25.

What happens if graduation is outdoors and the weather is bad?
