An in-person commencement ceremony planned this week for 321 Class of 2020 graduates from Red Bank Regional High School has been canceled due to coronavirus.

School officials scrubbed Thursday's graduation altogether after a senior tested positive for coronavirus, and "may have infected a number of classmates," they said.

The high school in Little Silver previously held this virtual ceremony on June 17.

The district's decision to scrap the in-person ceremony was made after officials from the school consulted with the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission, according to a letter posted on district’s website by Superintendent Louis Moore and Principal Julius Clark.

“Although disappointing, we must continue to prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff,” their letter read.

Red Bank Regional, which serves students in Little Silver, Red Bank and Shrewsbury with an enrollment of about 1,200, already held a virtual ceremony on June 17.
