Cape Henlopen High School celebrating seniors virtually
LEWES, Del. – Cape Henlopen High School is busy coming up with ways to celebrate their seniors from a distance. The school is doing a number of virtual and socially distant events for their graduating students. “We want to make sure that they know that we are supporting them and that we care about them and we’re going to miss them, and you know, we just want to make sure that they’re celebrated. Even down to senior awards. We’re going to have those virtual as well,” said principal Nikki Miller.
Miller says that the school is also working on a plan to create a driving path through Hudson Fields to showcase the journey of the class of 2020. The principal tells us that her faculty and staff’s top priority is making sure the seniors get their special recognition. “As soon as the governor that we weren’t going back, it was final. We had been brainstorming prior to that of what it would look like, what we could do. Just, for us, we wanted to make sure that we could give them the best possible experience,” said Miller.
The principal says that she’s hoping the school can organize and in-person graduation ceremony at some point, but right now it depends on when the COVID-19 pandemic might start winding down. Until then, Miller says seniors can expect staff to drop off signs and their diplomas.
