Branford Schools superintendent Halet Hernandez released the following statement regarding new guidance from the state on high school graduation:
Dear Parents and Guardians of the Class of 2020:
As you know, yesterday Governor Lamont announced new guidance for high school graduation ceremonies. We are currently reviewing this guidance and determining the viability of incorporating it into a second graduation plan that would take place on August 3, 2020. By exploring a second option we are able to provide students and their families choice.
The District acknowledges how emotionally difficult the entire planning process has been for you and your child. Dealing with uncertainty is never easy. We are committed to making this year’s graduation a safe, inclusive, and memorable event for everyone involved. The District will continue to coordinate our Class of 2020 graduation plans with our local public health officials and police department.
Additional information will be forthcoming and we thank you for your support as we consider and plan for this year’s graduation ceremony.
Hamlet M. Hernandez
