Senior Letter sent home May 21st

Dear NCHS Family,

This has certainly been a unique and unprecedented end to our school year.  Thanks to the input and cooperation of our students, parents, faculty, and staff, we have developed an excellent plan to celebrate the class of 2020 while following state and local guidelines.  To recognize and celebrate our amazing NCHS Class of 2020, we will have a senior car parade, with every member of the graduating class, going through the middle of downtown!  To win approval for our plan, we have guaranteed the health department that our students and families will stay in their cars, be prompt, and follow all directions during the parade.  With that understanding, we are excited to share our planning below. 

Some Highlights of the Experience:

  • Each graduating senior has a banner hung at a school or a location along the route

  • Over the summer, seniors will be invited to pick up their banners to keep as a memento

  • Seniors are encouraged to appropriately decorate their cars

  • One car per family - families are encouraged to ride together for the parade

  • The community is encouraged to line the parade route if they live along the route

  • Police and Fire Departments will lead the procession

  • Faculty and staff will line the roadway at Waveny for the final goodbye

  • Students and families must stay in their cars for the entire experience

Additional information for seniors:

  • Diplomas, and pictures will be scheduled by appointment between 6/8 - 6/19

  • If permitted, a live ceremony celebrating the class of 2020 will be held on July 31, 2020.  If a live ceremony is not permitted, a virtual ceremony will be held.

  • Senior athletes will be contacted directly through the Athletics Department

  • Our Front-Porch Graduation Photos, video is under construction and we will share it when complete! (Caps and Gown deliveries starting today)
