INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. — High school graduation ceremonies in Indian River County will be postponed until June, the school district announced.

"We are taking a proactive approach in postponing the date to ensure the health and safety of our students, and community as a whole, and allow families to be a part of the graduation celebration."
