In-person high school graduations in Houston look a lot different this year.

Chairs are placed six feet apart, students are wearing face masks and elbow bumps are replacing handshakes.

In-person ceremonies are being held this week for many students throughout the Houston area.

The ceremonies resumed after guidelines were released by Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Education Agency, who announced earlier in May that in-person graduation ceremonies would resume if social distancing and health protocols could be followed.

Take a look below at how these Houston-area school districts are holding their graduation ceremonies:
