EAST HANOVER, NJ - After Governor Murphy's announcement that in-person graduations will be allowed after July 6th, the East Hanover school district is considering plans for graduation ceremonies. See the message below from Superintendent of Schools Maria Carrell:
Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2020:
I hope this article finds you and your families well. Governor Murphy announced the ability for schools to host graduations after July 6. As we are still awaiting specific guidelines from the state, please know that the district is finalizing plans for in-person graduations at both Hanover Park High School and Whippany Park High School the week of July 6. We are in the process of coordinating with our insurance carrier and local authorities and will continue to await additional guidance from the state.
The district will continue to move forward with its virtual graduation process already in effect and confer diplomas on their previously established dates as follows and via the virtual graduation ceremonies:
Whippany Park High School – Thursday, June 25 at 6:00 p.m.
Hanover Park High School – Friday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m.
We are so happy that we are able to have the opportunity to enhance our graduation ceremonies given this new statement from the Governor’s Office.
As further guidance is released, specific information for these events will be forthcoming.
Please continue to stay safe and healthy.
All the best,
Superintendent of Schools
