Commencement exercises for the 12 El Paso Independent School District campuses issuing high-school diplomas will start Friday morning and continue through Monday night at the Don Haskins Center and Jones Stadium at El Paso High.
Nearly 5,000 students in 10 comprehensive high schools, an early college and an alternative school of choice are expected to graduate this spring. All graduations are at the Don Haskins Center on the University of Texas at El Paso campus, unless otherwise noted.
The District this year is launching an official EPISD Graduations Snapchat geofilter that will allow graduates, friends and family at the Don Haskins and Jones Stadium to personalize their photos and videos on the Snapchat social media platform.
The District also is asking graduates and family members to use the #IamEPISD hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram when they share photos, posts and videos.
Graduates attending the graduations should be aware of major road closures around the UTEP area that could impact their commute to the ceremonies. Free parking for the Don Haskins area is located in the lots north of the venue, as well as the lots north of the Sun Bowl stadium.
