Allow High School Seniors in New York to go back to school for one day to say goodbye

Hi I am an 18-year-old high school student who is a senior at a high school in New York. While I do take the coronavirus as a serious issue, we should allow seniors to go back to school for one day.  Just to say goodbye to all the teachers that have helped us through tough times and helped us to become the great people we are today. I understand that there are risks, but things are a lot safer now and by mid June it should be at the point where we should be able to do this. I’m not asking for a party but rather just an hour or two in which the students can take one last look at their high school and say goodbye officially.

You may think that I am one of those people that does not take this pandemic as a serious matter. But I can assure you I do because I have had personal losses in this pandemic. 2020 has not been a good year and it’s been a pretty rough school year for a lot of kids. High school seniors have had their year ruined by fear, panic, and unfortunately death. 

We are told many times by our parents that high school will be the best time of our lives. And since we could not finish this year as we wanted to- we should be allowed one day to say goodbye to our amazing teachers and staff that will forever be known or remembered in our lives.
