Governor Murphy, while our state has been very supportive of your actions during the pandemic, the parents of the graduating class of 2020 find it very unreasonable for you to ban all graduation ceremonies other than virtual ones. While we understand the severity of the health crisis we are facing we believe that our seniors have been waiting for this moment for many years and it does not have to be an all or nothing option.

While you have opened golf courses, parks, beaches, boardwalks, Targets, Walmart’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot’s, liquor stores etc, we are certain it is possible to find a creative way for the class of 2020 to graduate in the traditional manner while following the social distancing rules set forth.

We urge you to take this under serious consideration as this is “essential” to our children’s emotional, mental and social well being.

The Parents of the Class of 2020
