This year's 2020 Belen High School and Infinity High School Graduation will be a drive-thru ceremony held on June 9th. We sent our carefully developed plan for a ceremony to take place in the Eagle Stadium to the Secretary of Education. Doctor Stewart consulted with the Governor's Office. Due to the current health orders we are under, we will not be permitted to have the ceremony in the stadium. This is not the news we were hoping to hear; however, the safety of our students, staff, and community is essential, and we must follow the health orders. The Administration at B H S and I H S have plans in place so that those who wish to can view a live stream of the ceremony. Our entire staff is saddened by this news. We were greatly hoping we would be able to send off the Class of 2020 with the graduation ceremony they have worked hard for. and greatly deserve.
Good evening, Please go to the B H S web page to view the two options for the 2020 graduation ceremony. Our goal is to have a live graduation with guests at Eagle Stadium. However we are still awaiting approval from the state for a live graduation. You can find the document at https://www.beleneagles.org/o/bhs/browse/136885
Good afternoon, I am sure many of you have been anxiously waiting for information concerning the graduation ceremony scheduled for June 9. Unfortunately, we still do not have approval from the state to do a live on the field graduation for students nor have we received permission to have guests. We are hoping that by limiting the number of guests to 2 per student, we will have a better chance of getting approval to do the live ceremony. There are no plans for practice as of now, again because of the Governor's ban on large gatherings. If we are not given permission to have a live graduation, we will have a drive-thru graduation. Regardless, the graduation ceremony will be live streamed over YouTube. The link to the stream will be available on the B H S website. We are finalizing plans right now. Tomorrow we will send out plans for both the live ceremony and the drive thru ceremony.
