It’ll be virtual commencement
New Hampton High School is hoping it will be able to hold two commencement ceremonies in 2020 — a virtual one that will be released on Sunday, May 17, and a traditional one that will be held on Sunday, June 28.
In a letter to seniors and parents, Principal Sarah Updegraff said “in working with students through Zoom and a Google survey, they have overwhelming chosen a hybrid plan of a video of each graduate crossing the stage followed by a procession through town.”
Each senior will be allowed a 15-minute time for the filming of them receiving their diploma, and the clips will be combined together to make a video of a virtual commencement ceremony that will be released at 2:30 p.m. on May 17.
