Cancellations and Use of Backup Dates
Cancellations due to extreme weather events, or weather conditions that pose a threat of danger, will be made on the day of the scheduled event.

If the originally scheduled ceremony is cancelled due to extreme weather, it will be moved to the first available back up time and a communication will be sent to the families to notify them as soon as possible. If the back up time is cancelled due to extreme weather, the ceremony will be fully cancelled.
D20 will follow all El Paso county health guidelines currently in effect at the time of the ceremonies. As of April 16, 2021, the guidelines for outdoor events do not require spacing of households, health screenings, or the wearing of masks, however we encourage all participants to be aware of best practices as outlined by the El Paso County Health Department. If these guidelines are changed, we will adjust accordingly and let the community know as soon as possible.
