Graduation Update

Dear Clarkstown Parents and Students of the Class of 2020:

I hope this communication finds you healthy and in good spirits.

I am writing to inform you that Governor Cuomo announced today that  “We're going to allow socially distanced graduations outdoors with up to 150 people total beginning June 26th, subject to any outbreaks or significant changes.”

This announcement allows for more flexibility to celebrate our Graduates of the Class of 2020.  With this news, our high school principals will begin to consider additional Graduation plans while adhering to these new guidelines.  More information and details from our Principals will be forthcoming.

In the meantime, we look forward to tomorrow when the District begins Graduation by appointment ceremonies at both North and South High Schools.

Congratulations to our students in the Class of 2020 at Birchwood School, North High School, and South High School.

Thank you.

Stay strong!  Stay Healthy!



Martin D. Cox, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
