Pine Bush High School will host a virtual graduation for its Class of 2020 on Friday at 7 p.m.
Tim O. Mains, Pine Bush superintendent, said the district had hoped to be ablate hold an on-field ceremony at the end of July, but the updated guidance from the governor and state Department of Health continued to bar gatherings larger than 150 people. So, the on-the-field graduation ceremony has been canceled.
The district is also offering personal; graduation times, where graduating seniors cross a mini-stage with a Pine Bush backdrop and have photos taken with their family and either an administrator or board of education member. Nearly two thirds of the class of 2020 has already taken advantage of these personal graduation ceremonies.
This second round of personal graduations is scheduled for the week of August 3 through 6. Graduates from the Class of 2020 can sign up for a personal graduation time, on the high school page on the district website, and use the “pick a time” link. Graduates who haven’t yet picked up their diplomas can do so during these scheduled personal graduations or by calling the Pine Bush High School main office.
Friday evening’s virtual graduation ceremony can be viewed at the district website, pinebushschools.org.
