The Altoona Mirror

The Altoona Area High School commencement has been moved indoors to the Altoona Area High School Fieldhouse because of wet weather conditions. The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m.

Parents and other guests must have tickets to be admitted into the fieldhouse. They should enter the building through the lower doors on 14th street beginning at 5:30 p.m. Ticket holders will not be admitted through the main fieldhouse doors on Sixth Avenue.

A handicap drop-off area will be available on Sixth Avenue in front of the fieldhouse. Handicapped parking spaces will be available on Sixth Avenue at the Special Education building at 13th Street until all spaces have been filled.

Parents and guests are encouraged to park in the Roosevelt parking lot located between Seventh and Eighth avenues. Graduates should report to the high school no later than 5:15 p.m using the portico entrance. Girls should go to cafeteria II and boys to cafeteria I.

A live broadcast of the commencement ceremony will be available in the high school auditorium for those without tickets. The commencement will also be telecast live on Altoona Public Access Channel 14 beginning at 5:55 p.m.
