Here’s the press release from Roanoke County Public Schools: Friends and families of graduating Roanoke County seniors will once again be able to watch the pomp and circumstance of graduation on Wednesday, June 8 even if they can’t be in the stands in person. For the seventh straight year, Roanoke County Public Schools will provide award-winning live streaming coverage of graduation ceremonies with Graduation Live. Graduation ceremonies being held at the Salem Civic Center this year will be streamed live via the Roanoke County Public Schools Web site at: http://bit.ly/RCPSgradslive
Four Roanoke County high schools are holding graduation ceremonies at the Salem Civic Center:

- 11:30 a.m.: Hidden Valley High School
- 2:30 p.m.: Northside High School

Live online coverage for these high schools will begin approximately 5-10 minutes before each graduation begins.

Beginning June 9, family and friends can watch replays of 2016 graduation ceremonies with Graduation Rewind.
