ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With three Dougherty County public high school graduations happening Saturday, leaders said there a few things graduation goers should know. 

They said it's important for all to contain outbursts, along with air horns, or bells, or any noise-makers.

District leaders said it's important to get to graduation as early as possible for parking. 

They said there will be a heightened police presence, due to the high volume of people in the area. 

"We don't want anything to happen. Sometimes there's fender benders in parking lots and things like that. We want the day to go as smoothly as possible for everyone and to be memorable in all the right ways," said Dougherty County School System Spokesperson J.D. Sumner. 

That means not having traffic issues, not having security issues and those kinds of things.

There will be over 700 students graduating in the district. 

Monroe High's graduation will be at 9 a.m., Dougherty's will be at noon and Westover's will be at 3 p.m.
