On Tuesday night, July 21, the Board of Education approved our Transitional Reopening Plan, which will be submitted to the State as required on Friday, July 24. View a presentation of the plan that provides an overview of how Hamden proposes to reopen school. Specific details will be coming in the next few weeks.
On the afternoon of July 8, in between the pouring rain, thunder and lightning, the Class of 2020 had one of the most amazing graduations ever!
Although certainly not a traditional Hamden graduation, many things remained the same: There was the playing of "Pomp and Circumstance," families heard speeches, graduates walked across the stage in their caps and gowns to get their diplomas. But unlike other years, since everyone 'drove in' to keep us socially distanced, families and graduates HONKED their car horns in celebration! :-)
One of the great benefits of Graduation 2020 was that families and friends got to drive-up to the stage, giving them a front-seat to see their graduates up-close as their names were read and they walked across the stage. It helped make this graduation ceremony more special than ever!
The entire graduation was live-streamed and recorded - Watch the video and relive the fun!
This was certainly a graduation that will always be remembered. Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
