Class of 2020 Parents - New York State started this petition to Governor Andrew Cuomo

While we understand that these are unprecedented times, we respectfully ask that you follow the decision made by our neighboring Governor Phil Murphy and relax the stay-at-home restrictions to allow for outdoor, socially distanced commencement ceremonies in the state of New York after July 6th. 

Like New Jersey, we can give graduates of the Class of 2020 a well-deserved conclusion to their senior year, despite the coronavirus outbreak that has upended their daily lives since March. 

Governor Cuomo, OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE.  We want to ensure that our students are given the send-offs they have worked so hard for and which they so richly deserve.  We want them to celebrate and to be celebrated by their families, friends, teachers and administrators who have helped them to reach this important milestone. 

If restrictions are lifted in the very near future, our schools will have the time needed to plan and execute more traditional graduation ceremonies in a safe and respectful way.

Please do not let the Class of 2020 be defined by COVID-19.   Thank you for your consideration of this very important matter.
