COVID-19: Update Regarding LHS Senior Events
Wednesday, April 22, 2020 -
Dear Liverpool High School Seniors and Parents:
We hope this letter finds everyone safe and well. To say that the last few weeks have been difficult for all of us would be an understatement. Our lives have been disrupted in ways we never could have imagined and uncertainty is the new “normal.”
This is not how any of us wanted the second half of your senior year to go - with you doing school work at home and wondering what will happen to your upcoming senior year milestones. We know that you are disappointed, upset, and sad about what has taken place. We are too and we hope that missing out on these milestones does not become a reality.
As of this writing, all upcoming senior events and milestones are still on as scheduled. This includes the LHS Senior Ball on Saturday, June 13, and LHS Graduation on Saturday, June 20.
That being said, we know that we need to have alternate plans in case New York on PAUSE continues past the current May 15th date. While senior class officers are looking at possible alternate dates for the Senior Ball, the LHS administration has secured an alternate date for graduation. If we CANNOT hold graduation as originally scheduled on June 20, the next date for LHS Graduation will be Saturday, July 25.
We are so proud of all you have accomplished throughout your time in Liverpool, and we are even more impressed by how you have handled the last few weeks. We also are grateful for everything your families have done for you - not just throughout your life but also during this difficult time.
Please understand that we are doing everything we can to honor the LHS Class of 2020 while also trying to keep everyone safe and healthy. Our special senior celebrations typically begin during the month of May so we will have more details, including some ways to virtually recognize you and your accomplishments, in the near future.
Dr. Mark F. Potter
Superintendent of Schools
Executive Principal, Liverpool High School
