Adam Curtis Police Press Releases, Public Affairs Press Releases

The Buena High School graduation ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 24, at 7 p.m. and some traffic restrictions will be in place that evening.

From 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., traffic flow will be significantly restricted on Charleston Road in the area around the school. The gates to Loveless Field open at 5:30 p.m. Only motorists with graduation parking passes will be allowed to travel on Charleston Road toward Buena High School. It is highly recommended that all through-traffic heading to and from Tombstone avoid this area and detour via Moson Road and Highway 90.

It’s also recommended that attendees who do not have parking passes use the free shuttle service that will be running from The Mall at Sierra Vista parking lot to Buena High School. The shuttle buses start running every half hour at 5:30 p.m. from the northeast side of the Dillard’s parking lot. Shuttle bus traffic has the priority when arriving at the school and departing from the school so there will be no waiting in traffic when arriving or leaving on the shuttle buses.

At the conclusion of graduation, buses will pick up passengers t the same location where they were dropped off and will return to Dillard’s.  Wheelchair accessible buses will be available on the same schedule.
