Support a virtual graduation for Hoover City Schools

This petition had 1,393 supporters

Dear Hoover City Schools,

We the undersigned alumni, teachers, and community members of Hoover City Schools are writing to respectfully disagree with the decision to hold an in-person graduation for two of the largest public high schools in the state of Alabama during one of the deadliest pandemics in recent history.

While we understand that graduation is a special achievement, and we want the class of 2020 to celebrate, an in-person graduation is too great a risk to students, teachers, administrators, and the Hoover community at large. Coronavirus cases continue to rise in Alabama, and no matter the precautions taken; a gathering of that size will have deadly consequences. 

We hope you will reconsider this decision and embrace a virtual graduation as a much safer way to recognize graduates while not putting our children and community at risk.
