OLATHE, Kan. - The Olathe School District has moved all Sunday graduation ceremonies inside, due to the threat of inclement weather.

Sunday morning the district notified all families that due to the chance of rain, each school will host the graduation ceremonies inside their own gymnasiums.

The graduation times will remain the same.

Spokeswoman Maggie Kolb says that was the backup plan in case of rain, and families were aware.

Each graduate has already been allocated a certain number of tickets for family members. Each person who plans to attend must have a ticket. Overflow seating with a video stream will also be available at each school.

The number of tickets allocated depends on the graduating class size, and gym size.

Olathe South and Olathe East graduation is set for 2:00 p.m. Sunday. Ceremonies for Olathe North and Northwest are set for 7:00 p.m.
