This year, our seniors have faced an overpowering amount of adversity; going through unique college applications, trying to adapt to a new learning environment, and missing out on big senior events. Last year, 2020 seniors were not required to do work at the end of the year, and just received "RC" as grades. Compared to the class of 2021, the class of 2020 got let off remotely easy.

Most schools allow their seniors to sign out late April/early May, considering their credits, grades, attendance, and community service. Classes towards the end of the year for all graduating seniors tend to turn in to study periods, consumed with busy work. A majority of this years seniors have already obtained their required credits, are passing for the year, and are just waiting for the last day. For the first time in many years, senior sign out takes place the first week of June. 

To give our seniors a break from the pandemic, and to reward them for overcoming all educational adversities the pandemic holds, the City of Quincy should allow at least some of the seniors with qualifying conditions to sign out May 14th.
