BULLHEAD CITY – Up to 350 high school graduates from three local high schools will have a chance to walk in traditional graduation ceremonies over three evenings, culminating a challenging but successful year for the Classes of 2020. No changes are planned from the previously-announced schedules for CRUHSD Academy, River Valley and Mohave High Schools in the Colorado River Union High School District.
Invitation-only limited seating, social distancing and other health and safety guidance remain in place at CRUHSD’s Anderson Auto Group Fieldhouse. CRUHSD Academy’s 23 graduates will have ceremonies on Thursday, June 4, at 7:00 p.m. River Valley High School’s graduation for 99 seniors will be Friday, June 5, at 7:00 p.m. And Mohave High School’s commencement will be Saturday, June 6, at 6:00 p.m., for its 234 graduates. The time in between ceremonies will allow the Fieldhouse to be cleaned and sanitized following county, state and federal public health guidelines.
All three ceremonies will be available for live streaming and later video on demand viewing:

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has released guidance for graduations, based upon guidelines from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Mohave County’s Department of Public Health also supports the guidance. At the top of the list posted earlier on the CRUHSD Facebook page and website: stay home if sick or at-risk.
Local law enforcement officials are aware of the graduations. Because of the 8:00 p.m. curfew initiated Sunday by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, graduates and attendees are encouraged to proceed home unless stopping for food after ceremonies are over. There should be no loitering at either the Fieldhouse or elsewhere.
