PISCATAWAY, NJ — The Piscataway Township Schools will honor the Eighth Grade Class of 2020 with a two-part celebration on Thursday, June 18.

“We are disappointed that we can’t have a traditional promotion ceremony,” said Superintendent Dr. Frank Ranelli in a letter to the eighth grade students and their families.

“However, your child’s teachers and administration at the school, along with central office have designed a plan that we think provides an appropriate alternative.”

First, a Drive-Through Promotion Ceremony will be held at Piscataway High School. Each of the township’s three middle schools will have separate drive-through sessions from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  

The car line will begin 30 minutes before each school’s Promotion Ceremony — 8:30 a.m. for Schor Middle School, 11:00 a.m. for Quibbletown Middle School and 1:30 p.m. for Conackamack Middle School.

Cars should enter the parking lot near the tennis courts with the 8th grade graduate seated on the passenger side of the vehicle. School Safety Officers and Piscataway Police Officers will direct the flow of the traffic and ensure that the drive-through ceremony runs safely and smoothly from start to finish.

Also, a link to view the 8th Grade Virtual Promotion Ceremony will be posted on the district website at Noon on June 18th, and will remain there throughout the summer.
