The Belleville Henderson class of 2020, just like the entire class of 2020 have missed out on the majority of senior moments. Senior year is the way seniors get closure on this chapter before they move on to the next chapter. Graduation is the final time classes are all together, BHCS is a small school with only 34 students in the senior class. With that said they've all grown very close to each other over the past 13 years and would be very proud to see each other walk across the stage. Unfortunately, with the current plan in place (which was never brought up to the senior clsss, to have their voices heard) that won't happen. A trailer with a stage on it will either be brought to the seniors home or parked in the bus garage parking lot in order to receive their diploma, this will be recorded and all of them will watch the video on June 28th when graduation is originally suppose to be. I believe that seniors deserve far better of a ceremony than that. We could simply have our ceremony on the soccer field or in front of the school with our family and our class together while social distancing. Everyone can bring their own lawn chairs and the school does have a microphone that could be used for the ceremony outside, as they have our pep rallies outside. Day camps and other outdoor recreational activities are starting to reopen. If the school keeps graduation day June 28th instead of pushing it to June 15th - 19th they will surely be able to have an outdoor ceremony while social distancing on the initial date. As stated before the senior class didn't work for 13 years to have this be their final moment as students.
