With the 2019-2020 school year turned upside down by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, many high school seniors and their families had come to terms with having to celebrate one of the biggest days of their lives virtually, with big high school graduation ceremonies halted by the pandemic.

But, almost exactly a month ago, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eased some restrictions on gatherings, giving schools an avenue to move forward with at least some form of the football field, cap & gown graduation ceremonies that we all know and love (at least if you went to a small high school like I did).

This week, both Brick Township High School and Brick Memorial High School will hold truncated graduation ceremonies.

Both schools will have a pair of ceremonies on Wednesday, July 8th at 4:00 and 7:00 P.M.

Both Brick Township High School and Brick Memorial High School will hold their graduation ceremonies at their respective football fields.

Attendees are being asked to wear face masks during the gatherings and their temperatures will be checked as well.

With the limited tickets and seating because of continuing social distancing guidelines, all of the ceremonies will be live streamed.

If we get another round of bad weather on Wednesday, both high schools have set rain dates for the next day, Thursday, July 9th.

While the graduations won't be the big parties that we're used to, it's great that the Class of 2020 will be able to walk across the stage in their caps and gowns in front of their families to mark the official end of their high school careers.
