LAS CRUCES PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Class of 2022 commencement hosted at Field of Dreams

Posted

For the third consecutive year, Las Cruces Public Schools commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2022 will be held at the Field of Dreams, 2501 Tashiro Road, located near the corner of Motel Boulevard.  

The district began hosting graduation ceremonies at the Field of Dreams in 2020 when the pandemic prohibited all in-person gatherings. The following year, seniors in the Class of 2021 held commencement ceremonies on the field with a limited number of guests per graduate. 

Currently, there are no public health orders that limit group gatherings, so LCPS is not limiting the number of guests per graduate, however, carpooling is encouraged to reduce traffic congestion. Students are asked to arrive one hour prior to their scheduled ceremony and park on the east side of the stadium. Parents and guests may park in the west lot. Gates will open one hour before each ceremony.  

The schedule for each commencement is as follows: 
Friday, May 20, 9 a.m.  Centennial High School 
Friday, May 20, 1:30 p.m.  Arrowhead Park Early College High School 
Friday, May 20, 6 p.m.  Organ Mountain High School 
Saturday, May 21, 9 a.m.  Mayfield High School 
Saturday, May 21, 1:30 p.m.  Rio Grande Preparatory Institute 
Saturday, May 21, 6 p.m.  Las Cruces High School 

On Friday, all classes at Centennial High School will be remote and Organ Mountain High School will have an early dismissal.  

To ensure everyone has a view of the field-level stage, signs and umbrellas are prohibited. Concessions at the Field of Dreams will not be available, but attendees are welcome to bring bottled water and sunscreen. Drones are also strictly prohibited in the airspace over the field, stands and parking lot.  

For those who cannot attend, all ceremonies will be livestreamed at www.lcps.tv.
