Letter sent home on May 8th, 2020

Hello NCHS Senior parents,

We are hoping that everyone is healthy and staying sane throughout these unprecedented times. It is hard to believe that we have been in lock down for 2 months now - and that our seniors will not be going back to the high school that they love. We are so saddened by it all.

There are still so many unknowns however, we are going to attempt to move forward and do the best we can to plan a celebration for our seniors. Based on school closings, government guidelines, etc. we are cancelling Prom / Post Prom and will be planning a Graduation Party for the Class of 2020 instead at Woodway Beach Club on July 27th or August 3rd.  

So incredibly disappointing we know but, to plan an indoor dance and party this summer just isn't realistic. We need to move forward and think the beach party is our best option. IF your student is not able to attend AND/OR we are not able to have an outdoor party at the end of July/early August - we will deliver a ‘graduation gift bag’ to each graduate.

Graduation is happening however it may not be in traditional form as it will be in alignment with state and local regulations and guidelines. We are really pushing to get that information out to the parent community as soon as possible. As you all know - this is uncharted territory for us all and everyone involved just wants what is best for the Class of 2020.

There is not a lot we can do at this point except wait and see how things unfold in the coming months. However - there are two things you can do now for your senior:

1) WE NEED PICTURES OF YOUR SENIOR!! Mike Mottelese has volunteered to do a senior video that is typically shown at the post prom party. This year it will be really special and we want to make sure that every senior is represented. Please email 2-3 photos of your senior - Group shots if possible | Any school event (in High School preferable | JPG format with good resolution | Identify all students in photo. PLEASE send ASAP to 

2) BUY A SIGN to celebrate your senior and support the NCSF (New Canaan Scholarship Foundation). Signs on our lawns will be a great display of our unity and pride all while supporting the NCSF. Signs will be here soon and delivered. Click here to purchase

Thank you so much for your support and patience. The PFA and Prom Committee are committed to celebrating the Class of 2020!
