Dear Seniors, Parents and Community Members,
As we enter the final weeks of summer, I hope that you are enjoying the break thus far and are spending quality time with family and friends. I know that the 2018-19 school year will prove to be an exciting time for the Class of 2019, filled with momentous milestones, celebrations and ceremonies for our seniors, including graduation.
This year, we are pleased to announce that the Class of 2019’s graduation ceremony will be held on Wednesday, June 26 at 5:30 pm
on the high school football field (weather permitting).
The graduation celebration will not only mark the start of a new journey for our seniors, but also for our school district. As you may know, the high school has typically held its graduation celebration on the first Saturday following the final day of school.
After careful consideration, the decision to move the commencement date for the Class of 2019 was made based on several factors. If we followed the district’s past format, graduation would not be held until Saturday, June 29, leaving seniors with a large gap between completing the school year and graduation. Furthermore, an evening graduation ceremony allows for potentially cooler weather conditions for an outdoor ceremony.
Thank you for your understanding and for your continued support. I look forward to an incredible year for our seniors and the rest of the Riverhead High School community. #ThisIsRiverhead
