Mayfield Commencement Postponed - Severe weather expected, ceremony pushed to Sunday Severe thunderstorms developing Saturday afternoon near the Field of Dreams have prompted administrators with Las Cruces Public Schools to postpone commencement exercises for Mayfield High School’s Class of 2023. The ceremony has been rescheduled to Sunday morning at 9 a.m. at the Field of Dreams. District officials have been monitoring the weather the last few days with the assistance of the National Weather Service in Santa Teresa. Storms originally were expected to pass through but developed quickly, prompting swift action. “We understand this is a tremendous inconvenience for graduates and families, but the safety of everyone at the stadium is of paramount importance,” said Deputy Superintendent of Operations for LCPS, Gabe Jaquez. All commencement ceremonies have been broadcast live, courtesy of LCPS-TV. Click here for more information.
