    Dear Jaguar Class of 2020 Students & Families:

    It is our sincerest hope that as we send this correspondence, our students and families are safe and healthy. “Senior Year” is a major milestone as it completes a major chapter of the book of “life”, but it also prefaces the chapter titled “Adulthood”. This pandemic has thrust us all into a new normal which most of us would never have imagined in our wildest dreams. 

    The Administrative Team here at East Orange Campus High School would like to thank you all for your patience  and  understanding regarding our senior activities information. For the record, we have attempted to make  contact with our seniors on at least three separate occasions:

    1. VIRTUAL CLASS MEETING with Senior Team including Ms. Davis (Senior Class Administrator), and Ms. Trimmings (Senior Class Advisor)
    2. PROM SURVEY (posted in PERFECT VISION GOOGLE CLASSROOM)
    3. COMMUNITY SERVICE LOUNGE (launched on May 1, 2020)

    We understand that many of our students and parents have had questions and concerns regarding these events.  The Community Service Graduation Requirement,  Graduation,  and Prom have been topics of discussion at several of our school leadership team meetings because these three items are a part of the senior year experience. Knowing this, we realized that we could not make any hasty decisions regarding these events because we felt it would be a disservice to our seniors, our families, our community, and the Campus faculty and staff as we all look forward to these functions. We too, have a vested interest in the members of Class of 2020 because we are their extended family; we share in the excitement of seeing the fruits of our labor ripen.

    Covid-19 has put us all through many tests. Our fast-paced,  hyper-social community had to learn to be still. We had to patiently wait for updates and directives from various levels of upper administration including but not limited to Governor Phil Murphy’s administration in an effort to make informed decisions that would keep us all safe. In the meantime, we were exploring our options with the  hope that we could somehow create an experience worthy of this class while meeting the guidelines for social distancing. Below, you will find the East Orange Campus High School Class of 2020 Senior Activity Plan that addresses your concerns.

    1. Community Service Graduation Requirement: Per the East Orange Board of Education, each member of the Class of 2020 must acquire 20 hours of community service. This  graduation requirement has been discussed at every class meeting for the past four years.  In an effort to assist students who have not met this requirement at this time, we have created the EOCHS CAMPUS COMMUNITY SERVICE HEADQUARTERS which is designed to assist students with fulfilling this mandate from the safety of their homes. Students should use code hsk5tdc to join the GOOGLE CLASSROOM to find all the details regarding the various opportunities for VIRTUAL COMMUNITY SERVICE.  
    2. Prom:  On April 24, 2020 we surveyed the Class of 2020.  The class opted out of postponing the prom; therefore, the prom is cancelled for 2020. Students who submitted prom payments will receive a refund (projected date June 1, 2020 - June 15, 2020). There will be a special tribute planned for the Class of 2020 as a part of the East Orange Campus High School 2020 Homecoming Weekend. 
    3. Graduation: The Class of 2020 graduation which was originally scheduled for June 15, 2020 at Paul Robeson Stadium will be changed to a “virtual ceremony” that will follow the traditional graduation program which will include formal addresses from student leaders, the Campus Administrative Team, and various members of the District Level Administrative Team and members of the East Orange Board of Education. Each member of the graduating class will be announced ceremoniously while their photo is displayed as a part of the production. The production team will also highlight senior events and sporting activities to assist with capturing the essence of our amazing year at East Orange Campus High School.  Students who submitted payments for caps and gown will receive a refund (projected date June 1, 2020 - June 15, 2020).

    It has been an honor to serve as  The East Orange High School Class of 2020 Administrative Team.  As we continue to close out this school year, we encourage our students to stay focused on meeting their graduation requirements and solidifying their post-secondary plans while remaining safe and “Jaguar Strong”!

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Ronnie Estrict
