Petition to Vernon Parish School Board, Leesville High School, Governor Edwards
Senior Class of 2020
I am speaking not only for MY senior but all the others seniors in Vernon Parish. These kids didn’t go to school for 12-14 years to sit at home in cap and gown on the couch on graduation day. This isn’t fair to them. I know this is a trying time for our country, as if this WHOLE situation isn’t heartbreaking enough. Why can’t the VPSB just post pone for a later date? They don’t have to cancel right away. PARENTS, FAMILY & FRIENDS, lets ALL stand up for these Seniors! They deserve this & SO much more!!!!
Petition to Albany High School Class of 2020
All Together Safe Distance Graduation
If you're interested in having the most realistic graduation we can have at the moment, please take a couple seconds out of your day to sign this petition. We have obtained an affordable estimate from a licensed and insured event producer to manage a safe-distance graduation ceremony at the cougar field so we can all graduate together. If every Albany High School class of 2020 family pitches in $40 we can have a memorable graduation together like we deserve.
Petition to University of Toledo President Sharon Gaber
University of Toledo should postpone graduation instead of canceling it.
Many universities and colleges in Ohio have postponed their graduation ceremonies instead of canceling them. The University of Toledo has canceled their graduation ceremony instead of postponing it and it is not fair to the students who have worked hours upon hours to finish their degrees. Their decision has impacted thousands of students who deserve a proper graduation ceremony. Please sign this petition if you want the faculty at the University of Toledo to reconsider their decision.
Petition to Poudre School District, Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, Larimer County Colorado
Parents should be able to go to PSD Graduations
Senior students want their parents and families to attend their High School Graduation. The date isn't until July 24-25. That's not for another 2 months! Surely, by then, we can figure out solutions that are fair to our seniors. There are several safe options that could be utilized such as: several smaller ceremonies, larger venue, masks, assigned seating for the audience to name a few. Why is Poudre School District and Larimer County Department of Health and Environment not working hard to find these solutions? What has been done for our 2020 seniors? Why is this decision being accepted by us parents and not challenged? There is still enough time to figure this out. Even if you don't have a senior in your family this year, don't let this year set a precedent for future years. We, as parents, students, Americans, respected community members, voters, and tax payers should be heard and have a say. Please sign this petition so our 2020 seniors don't suffer these consequences. And, Please share it on your page. Thank you!
Petition to Boston College, Joy Moore, William P. Leahy, S.J.
Have an In Person Boston College 2020 Commencement
Sign this petition to let the BC administration know that we want an in person graduation. Even if graduation is postponed to the distant future, we will not settle for an online graduation ceremony. We have worked too hard for the past 4 years to have commencement taken away from us. Stand strong together as the class of 2020 with other BC students, alumni, and parents!
Petition to Horry County Schools, Superintendent, Superintendent Rick Maxey
LET HORRY COUNTY SCHOOLS STUDENTS GRADUATE
On April 22, 2020, Horry County Schools Superintendent Dr. Rick Maxey announced that the class of 2020 would have a virtual graduation due to COVID-19. Our graduations are not supposed to held until the first week of June. He announced this on the same day that Governor McMaster announced schools would be closed for the remainder of the year. The Governor allowed the freedom for district superintendents to come up with alternate ways to have a safe graduation. We believe this call to have a virtual graduation was made much too early to judge. Our class has worked extremely hard to reach this milestone and it has been taken away from us much too soon. We ask that you sign this because we believe there are alternate options available to make a graduation work. Whether it is postponed to later in the summer or moved to a new location where precautions are met, we still want to have a chance to achieve what we have always looked forward to. The RIGHT way.
Petition to Jay Inslee, Dr. Wiesman, school boards
Governor Inslee needs to allow outdoor graduations for the 2020 High School Seniors!
The Senior High school classes of 2020 in WA state demand an outdoor graduation option. The WA State Health Dept and Governor Inslee said we needed to flatten the curve. We have far less numbers of Coronavirus and the ability to social distance in an outdoor venue has been easily done in many other states. Numerous large businesses such as Boeing are open as well as Costco, and Amazon with many more people in one space then an outdoor graduation would create! This is unjust and unfair to not allow school districts to make their own decision on this important life event! Many graduating classes are 500 or less and should have the option for outdoor graduation in June or July.

Traditional Graduation Ceremony for Milford High School Seniors
As of right now Milford High School is cancelling the Graduation Ceremony for this year's graduates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Right now there are two different plans for the Seniors and parents to choose from. Plan 1 is to have students and their parents gather at the local drive-in and watch a prerecorded ceremony. Plan 2 is to have the music and speeches but have the parents hand the diplomas to their children. These plans are not fair to the seniors graduating this year. Graduations do not belong to the school or the school administration. They belong to the graduates, their families and their friends. While the safety of all the people involved is important, measures cannot be implemented that adversely affect or are unfair to the students. These students have worked 12 years to finish school. This is an important milestone in the lives of all the seniors and is an important milestone in the lives of the parents as well. The students, their families and friends deserve a traditional Graduation Ceremony. Other school districts are delaying their graduations and Milford can and should do the same thing. It is in the best interest of the graduates this year. They have worked so hard for 12 years and it is wrong to rob them of this very important milestone in their lives.
