After being derailed by the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, the Ignacio High School carried on with a custom-tailored Commencement Ceremony on the Ignacio Athletic Field on Saturday, May 29. Each student was allowed five guests to sit on the field in “family pods,” and were seated among other families as social distancing was adhered to. A look back at the 2020 graduation had the graduates receive their diploma’s in a drive-thru ceremony. This year, although some COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, masks were an option, the ceremony commenced as a more traditional ceremony. This is the second consecutive year Ignacio entertained a Graduation Parade after the ceremony concluded.
