The last graduating class of Oñate High School waits on the turf inside the Field of Dreams to receive their diplomas. This is the first year Las Cruces Public Schools opened the stadium to commencement ceremonies after public health orders prohibited indoor graduation events, normally held at the Pan American Center. 

Additional Parking Opened to Alleviate Graduation Congestion 


Road construction near the Field of Dreams caused traffic delays Friday morning, prompting officials with Las Cruces Public Schools to open additional parking options.  

Parking is now open at the soccer fields next to the Field of Dreams, accessible from Bruins Lane. The stadium normally is accessible from Tashiro Road and Valley Drive, but upgrades at the intersection forced a road closure, causing traffic congestion on Motel Boulevard, currently the only access point to the Field of Dreams.  

The schedule for each ceremony is as follows: 


Friday, May 21, 9 a.m. 

Oñate High School 

Friday, May 21, 1:30 p.m.
