May 7, 2020 - Plans are being developed to honor the graduating Class of 2020 with a modified commencement ceremony followed by a caravan procession through our district. This event will occur on Thursday, June 25. Graduating seniors will be provided with specific information about the event, which will entail decorating their family’s vehicle to participate in the caravan, taking/submitting photos, lining up in their vehicles along Route 28 for a brief ceremony over FM radio, and then touring forty-three miles of district roads in a caravan style while the entire Onteora Community cheers on and celebrates the accomplishments of senior class. This event is being made possible by the support of our Town Supervisors, our local, county, and state emergency service agencies, and with assistance of Woodstock Radio - WDST (FM 100.1). This will prove to be one of the most exciting events that the district has conducted and we are hoping for the community’s support.
