To the graduating class of 2020 and their loved ones,

The faculty and administration of CTEA wishes that this note finds you safe, healthy and well. The pandemic has challenged us all in so many ways. Normally we would physically unite at a graduation ceremony for our seniors, for whom we are so proud. However, in respect to all and in compliance with New York State guidelines, graduation for the class of 2020 will take place virtually.

For the past few months a small committee of teachers and students have been meeting weekly to create a virtual graduation ceremony for the CTEA class of 2020. We tried to keep as many traditional elements of a graduation as possible, and have a full program scheduled. Each student will have their name announced for all to cheer on.

The staff and administration at CTEA acknowledge that a virtual graduation is no substitute for the in person experience students and their families looked forward to and deserve. Our students are far too important to us, and we will do all that we can to honor and celebrate this great life achievement. The virtual graduation is a tribute to our students hard work and we plan to launch it on Friday, June 26th at 3:00 pm on Youtube. We hope you will join and celebrate with us.

We will follow up with a link to attend.

Additionally, please note that all senior items will be delivered to your homes by the DOE courier service. We estimate that all items should be delivered by June 22nd. A signature will be required upon delivery and the courier may call you when they arrive. If you have any last minute changes to your delivery address or phone number, please email Ms. Ortiz at no later then Tuesday June 9th.
