Rain forces East Providence High graduation ceremony indoors
EAST PROVIDENCE — The threat of rain has forced the East Providence High School Class of 2014 commencement ceremony scheduled for Friday night, June 13, indoors.
Instead of its traditional home of Pierce Stadium, the current crop of Townies will instead receive their diplomas at the Providence Country Day Field House adjacent to the high school grounds.
The start of the graduation ceremony remains the same, 6:30 p.m.
Administrators made the decision just before noon Friday and with no end to the rain in sight. The forecast for later in the evening set the chance of precipitation at upwards of 90 percent.
