MAYA THOMPSON started this petition to EPISCOPAL HIGH SCHOOL

After the devastating news of school closures and the roller coaster of emotions EHS Class of 2020 had to endure, we recently just heard our commencement for the August 8th date was canceled. COVID-19 halted our senior year and suspended our last year of high school. Many of us felt the impact of the virus immediately as we were separated from friends and couldn’t finish out our high school sports. The hard work, stress, tears, and joy that all of us put into our 4 years of high school wants to be celebrated with family and friends before we begin a new chapter. Many of us, including I do not feel like we completely closed out our high school chapters as seniors. Episcopal could of waited closer to the October date to cancel a memorable event that many of us were looking forward to. Our senior year was cut short and we weren’t able to say goodbye to friends, teachers, and associates before we head off to college. Possibly as an alternative, Episcopal could have a drive by graduation around front circle, where we could receive our degrees and take pictures. Another alternative could be to hold our commencement on the football field, where social distancing will be required. Maybe we can’t all be together on August 8th, but possibly a updated date way before June of 2021. There’s no clear outline for these alternative options yet, but hopefully this can be a first step to make gradation possible. Please join me in signing this petition and getting this across Mr. Stillwell and faculty of Episcopal High School.
