Letter from a Reader: If Day Camps Can Open, Why Can't There Be a Graduation?

DSC03429This letter was sent to the Scarsdale Schools from Shirley High:

Good afternoon:

Governor Cuomo announced June 29th for summer day camps to open, so why doesn’t Scarsdale do an in-person graduation ceremony June 29th? This is only a 3 day postponement from the original date and would make no sense not to have it.

Let’s please consider giving the kids a meaningful celebration instead of a kitchen table graduation. The 5 minute parade does not make up for a proper graduation. With the 6’ apart and outdoors ceremony should be safe and easily doable.

Please change it to a true in person ceremony on June 29th. It isn’t too late to do so.
