"It's just something to give back to our seniors," said Cipriano.

Hasbrouck Heights High School principal Linda Simmons announced the honor in lights last Friday in an email to the parents. 

Dear Parents/Guardians,
We see the light in each of our seniors. Their luminescence makes us feel so much joy and pride. In honor of the HH graduating class of 2020, every Friday night beginning May 1st, the lights at Depken Field will be turned on to shine brightly  at 2020 (8:20pm),  for 20 min. and 20 sec. This will symbolize the beacon they have been for our school. We encourage them to continue to light up Bergen County(#LightUpBergenCounty) and the world. Their accomplishments will forever shine in our hearts. Thank you seniors.
Mrs. Simmons, HS Principal
