PORTLAND, Maine (WMTW) - Deering High School held an in-person graduation ceremony outdoors on Wednesday.

Outdoor ceremonies for Portland High School and Casco Bay High will be held on Thursday.

Deering grads say being able to celebrate in person means a lot after an incredibly tough year.

“It was so hard adjusting to not being in the school so it feels like extra special today that we get to be all in-person. It’s really nice to see everyone’s faces after not seeing them for what feels like forever,” said graduate Edyson Pines.

There are about 500 graduating seniors.

A set number of family members are allowed- but everyone must wear a mask regardless of their vaccination status.
