— Officials with the Wake County School District still don't know why family members of Fuquay-Varina graduates were locked out of a graduation ceremony June 11. And they don't think they ever will.

The school district has closed its investigation into the incident that left almost 100 guests standing outside the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts while the ceremony proceeded without them.

Schools spokesman Greg Thomas said other graduations at the same location went off without a hitch.

Fuquay-Varina principal Edward McFarland is sending DVDs of the ceremony to those families who missed it.
