SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Class of 2020 faced another setback albeit a short one on Wednesday. Thunderstorms in the area forced the postponement of tonight's outdoor commencement for Spotswood High School. The graduating class of 164 Spotswood, Helmetta and Milltown students was supposed to begin at 6 p.m. on the field of the Spotswood High School Football Stadium. Due to the inclement forecast, the graduation ceremony will have to wait until Thursday morning at 11 a.m.
The coronavirus pandemic reshaped the landscape of senior year for the Chargers Class of 2020. Many much-anticipated events such as prom and senior trips were canceled because of COVID-19. For weeks even the fate of an in-person graduation ceremony hung in the balance as New Jersey remained under a stay-at-home order. On June 23, Spotswood High School held a virtual graduation ceremony for students.
Thursday's 11 a.m. forecast for Spotswood is sunny with an outdoor temperature of 85 degrees. According to weather.com, there is a zero percent chance of rain tomorrow morning. The sunny forecast should mean Spotswood High School's Class of 2020 will finally get the opportunity to toss their graduation caps into the air.
Hats off to the Chargers' Class of 2020!
