Both Helena High and Capital High held their Class of 2020 graduation ceremonies, in-person.

Helena Public School leaders worked with the Lewis and Clark Public health to meet all health requirements to have the in-person graduations.

All students wore a mask and they were only allowed to bring two guests with them into the stadium.

The graduation was held at Nelson Stadium at Carroll College. Helena High went first at 8 a.m., June 6th.

"Well I feel extraordinarily thankful. This is something that our community said, if at all possible, we wanted to do. So, I'm happy that we are able to deliver it," says Luke Muszkiewicz, Chair of the Helena School Board.

Capital High graduated next in the same location at 11 a.m., June 6th. Extra guests stood outside the stadium to view the graduations.

Helena Public Schools offered anyone to view the graduation virtually. If you missed the live event, Helena Public Schools will post the complete, graduation ceremony online.
