Graduation on the horizon for Stanton and Grady seniors

MARTIN COUNTY - With most of 2020’s senior year stolen from prospective graduates and their families, good news was finally announced this week.

Governor Greg Abbot gave the orders allowing schools hybrid graduation ceremonies.

One option is for students to come in one at a time to collect their diplomas, have a short video and photos taken, and those videos and photos would be edited together to run at a virtual ceremony.

Vehicle ceremonies are also allowed under the governor’s plan, meaning schools could organize drive-in graduations or parades through designated street routes.

Abbott reopens Texas state parks for day-use

AUSTIN - Texas State Parks began reopening for day-use only on Monday as part of a broader effort to begin reopening the state of Texas.

Per Governor Abbott’s direction, new restrictions in effect include requiring visitors to wear face coverings and maintain a six-foot distance from individuals outside of their party, and prohibiting the gathering of groups larger than five.

Due to limited staffing, weather conditions and continuing construction projects, some state parks will not be open at the current time. Park visitors should check the Texas State Parks Alert Map regularly for the latest information about the status of individual parks. The resumption of overnight camping will be announced to the public once a date has been determined.
