4-28-20 Lenape High School Commencement Ceremony Update Letter

  • Dear Lenape Members of the Class of 2020, 

    The past month has been challenging for everyone, but especially for you, our Class of 2020, who have missed out on valued celebratory moments due to an interrupted senior year. This disappointment weighs heavily on our hearts and is always on our minds.  Please know Lenape High School looks forward to recognizing, acknowledging and celebrating all of your efforts and accomplishments.  Each year it is our honor to recognize hundreds of graduates to celebrate with their families, friends, and our school community at our Commencement Ceremony.  

    Governor Murphy announced that schools would remain closed through May 15, at which time he would evaluate the possibility of returning to school. While we hope that we will be able to proceed with our scheduled Commencement Ceremony in June, we know that our plans may change given how rapidly this public health crisis is evolving.  We have formed a graduation committee that is exploring several options for our seniors. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of the Class of 2020 and will provide you with updates on your Commencement Ceremony as more information becomes available. 

    We encourage you to stay focused and finish the semester with the same focus and dedication you have demonstrated throughout the past four years. Please take advantage of the online resources that your teachers and counselors have provided that will assist you over the next several weeks.  

    Remember, we are better together and will get through this together. 

    Lenape Pride! 

    Yours in education,
    Tony Cattani 
    Principal
