Lakewood High reschedules graduation again, so does Countryside High

Two high schools in Pinellas County made last-minute changes to their graduation plans because of the weather.

Lakewood High now will hold its ceremony at 7 p.m. tonight - that's right, tonight - at the First Baptist Church, 1900 Gandy Blvd., St. Petersburg. Students are asked to arrive at 5:30 p.m. for a rehearsal. The change will allow the entire class to walk together for the ceremony. A previous plan announced yesterday would have split the group by gender.

Countryside High moved its graduation into the gym this morning. There will be two ceremonies for Countryside High. The first will be at 9:30 a.m. - right now - and is for students whose last name starts with A to L. The second will start at 11:30 a.m. and will be for students with last names starting from M to Z.
