• IMPORTANT Information for MHS Class of 2020


    Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2020:

    On behalf of the entire Manasquan High School community, I wish to congratulate you in advance for your courage and determination to complete this school year strong in the face of adversity. As we approach the finality of your senior year, there are several important items and events that need to be discussed. I would ask all of our students to take the last few days to ensure they have completed all of the requirements outlined by your teachers and to finish strong until our last day of school Friday, June 12th. Each student must have completed and satisfied all of the academic and attendance requirements of the Manasquan Board of Education and the New Jersey Department of Education. By doing so a student is eligible to be certified as a graduating student of our Class of 2020 and eligible to participate in our on-campus graduation ceremony, scheduled for Monday, July 13th, 2020. Students must have completed all requirements with no exceptions.

    Please review the following for a timeline of events:

    1. Caps, Gowns, & Gift Bags (June 8 - June 9)

    Members of the high school administration and staff will begin delivering graduation caps and gowns, along with a gift bag sponsored by the Manasquan Board of Education, on Monday June 8th & Tuesday 9th from 1230 PM -4 PM each day. I request that the student and/or a family member be home between those time frames to receive these items. Please have some patience awaiting delivery, as we are coordinating the staff who have volunteered to deliver throughout Manasquan and our sending districts. If your child does not receive these items by Tuesday late afternoon please contact me at rgoodall@manasquan.k12.nj.us. Students will not receive their graduation items if they have not met all of the necessary requirements.

    1. Manasquan Community Commencement Bells of 2020 (June 8, 6:30 P.M.)

    We invite you in celebration of the Class of 2020, to participate this Monday June 8th at 6:30PM in the Manasquan Community Commencement Bells of 2020, the celebratory kick off for graduation week. Families and friends are encouraged to ring bells at 6:30PM at your home to celebrate and honor the Class of 2020.

    1. Drive-Up Drop Off/Pick Up of School & Personal Items (June 10 - June 12)

    Beginning Wednesday, June 10th, we are requiring every senior to schedule a time for a drive up drop off/pick up of all school items and personal items while respecting all social distance protocols. This includes the district issued laptop, textbooks, calculators, uniforms or any other school resource. All of your personal items have been bagged and labeled from the student locker to distribute to you. We ask that you stick to your appointment using the “horseshoe’ driveway at the Broad Street entrance, and you will be directed to each station to drop off and pick up all described items. No student will be given their diploma until all Board of Education property or school issued fines have been satisfied. Please complete the inventory check out list HERE ahead of time and bring with you during your scheduled drop off / pick up appointment. This will ensure we record all items returned per student. We ask your sincerest cooperation in this matter, in preparation for SY2020-21.

    District-issued laptops and chargers must be returned or fines will be issued. Laptops bags and cloths DO NOT need to be returned. Please do not bring these items to the drop-off.
