ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – High school graduation ceremonies for Albuquerque Public Schools are now underway. A video from Monday, May 10 shows seniors at Atrisco Heritage Academy preparing to walk across the stage at Nusenda Community Stadium.

In just a couple of hours, the seniors from Valley High will do the same. Some wondered if graduations would even be possible during COVID-19, however, APS has scheduled in-person graduations for all schools.

The bigger graduations will take place at Nusenda with one ceremony in the morning and one in the afternoon. COVID-safe practices are in effect.

Additionally, each senior is only allowed four guests.
