Important message from Mr. Cobb

Good morning,


I hope that this email finds you all healthy and well and you are enjoying the summer.  I wanted to take a moment to provide an update on the two remaining events for the members of the Class of 2020, the Senior Prom, and Graduation.  

Senior Prom - Unfortunately the restrictions on the amount of people permitted to gather has not have not eased in the past few weeks.  In a normal year, we typically have between 400 -500 students attend our senior prom.  Due to this, the Senior Prom will be canceled for 2020.  This was not an easy decision to make as this is an event that has been “a right of passage” for students throughout this country for generations.  It is just not possible to have an event of this magnitude given the climate and restrictions in our state.  


Graduation - I have delayed in writing to you about graduation with the most sincere hope that restrictions would be eased and we would be able to have our traditional graduation ceremony at Deer Park High School on our football field but again, this is an event that we will have to modify to adhere to current laws and social distant guidelines.  We will be having multiple graduation ceremonies that adhere to  Governor Cuomo’s guidelines.  We will be having these ceremonies over multiple evenings, on July 30th and July 31st, with a rain date of August 1st.  On July 21st I will be sending out the schedule for ceremonies along with other details on how graduation will be held this year.  


I thank you for your patience and understanding during the past few months.  I realize that it has not been easy for anyone, mostly our students and especially the Class of 2020.  Please be on the lookout for my email on July 21st that will provide all of the information needed for our graduation ceremonies. Thank you and have a nice day.

Important message from Mr. Cobb

Good afternoon,

I am writing to you today with an overwhelming sentiment of discouragement as I need to inform you on how we will be proceeding with graduation for the Class of 2020.  As most of you are aware, yesterday Governor Cuomo stated that in-person graduation ceremonies will not be permitted.  With this information, we will not be able to hold our scheduled ceremony on June 26, 2020.  As disappointing as this news is, we have now turned our full attention to a “drive up” type ceremony that falls within the Department of Health guidelines.  We are currently discussing all of the logistics of this type of ceremony and I will be informing you of the date, potential times and various other details of this event at the end of next week. 


I know that everyone that is involved with graduation wanted our “traditional” ceremony to take place. If it does become possible that a traditional, socially distanced ceremony were permitted in July we would explore this as an option as well.  Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I look forward to sharing more information with you next week.

Good afternoon,

I hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well.  Please take some time and read the information below as it contains valuable information about many end of the year events.  

Locker Cleanout- I have created a schedule for students to come to DPHS to clean out their lockers  and return the various items they have.  We will be collecting textbooks, calculators, athletic equipment, library books, musical instruments, Chromebooks for Seniors only, and any other school owned item that needs to be returned.   This schedule has been developed to limit the amount of students in the building at a  given time.  Students will be required to have a face covering to enter the building to retrieve their belongings.  Please reference the chart below which shows when students can come to DPHS to complete this. Please use the first two letters of your last name and your grade for your time slot.

Senior Prom - We will be postponing the Senior Prom to Friday July 24th.  Please know that we are hoping that this event will occur in July, but the decisions on large gatherings within the county and state are out of our control.  Further information about the prom will be shared by our class of 2020 advisors Mrs. LaCova & Mr. Johntry.  

Senior Awards - We will be releasing a Google Slideshow on Thursday June 11th.  At the event, thousands of dollars will be awarded to our seniors due to the generosity of our local businesses, community organizations and generous individuals.  We also recognize academic accomplishments for the Class of 2020.  Further information about this event will be sent home to the recipients of these awards.  

Graduation - We will hold graduation on June 26th at 6:00 P.M. as planned.  We are planning for a traditional commencement outside on the DPHS football field.  We will utilize as much field space as necessary to maintain adequate social distancing for our graduates and attendees. We will require all in attendance to wear a face covering.  We will be limiting the number of guests to two per graduate.  No exceptions will be made to the number of guests allowed.  

In the event the restrictions on social gatherings, which is currently in place by NYS and Suffolk County officials, are not eased or lifted by June 19th, we will be hosting a drive thru graduation.  We are in the process of securing a date and venue for this event.  As soon as the details are finalized for this I will communicate them to you.  

Signs for Seniors - The various Deer Park PFC’s have generously donated money for the district to provide a lawn sign for every member of the class of 2020.  Deer Park High School staff will be delivering these signs to homes on June 2nd with a rain date of June  3rd.  You will receive more information from me in the next few days about this.  

Cap and Gown & Yearbook Distribution - I am in the process of developing a “drive thru” type of pickup for these items.  DPHS staff will be present to celebrate our class of 2020.  This will occur on June 22nd, with a rain date of June 23rd.  More details to follow on this senior event.  


Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in regards to the items addressed above.  As always, if you need any clarification on any of these items or have any questions please feel free to email me directly at your earliest convenience.  Thank you again and have an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.

Community Cheers for Senior Car Parade

Community Cheers for Senior Car Parade thumbnail172755

Deer Park held a terrific car parade on June 12 to honor the high school’s senior Class of 2020, organized by teacher Jacqueline Amato and community members Taneka Jones and Alicia Libraro. Preceded by fire trucks, students drove through the neighborhood in cars decked out with balloons, streamers and messages, waving and honking as onlookers cheered.

HS Honors Girls Track Seniors with Parade

Deer Park HS honors girls track seniors with parade thumbnail172606

The high school held a special senior parade on May 16 for the girls track team. Forty cars filled with students and parents circled the high school track parking lot honking and cheering as the team’s nine seniors – team manager Lindsey Lam; team captain and sprinter Julia DiMaio; 1,500-meter race walker Arianna Araujo; triple, high and long-jumper Marissa Cummings; sprinters Stephane Honore and Raven Hull; and throwers Tassyana Blake, Morgan Keuler and Regan Mays – looked on with the posters their teammates had made for them.

“Even though our season was canceled, these girls knew it was imperative that we all get together one last time to honor their senior teammates,” said coach James Petti.

Deer Park’s girls track program was ranked among the top teams in the county this year, and the Falcons were preparing to defend their league championship title and try to win their first-ever Suffolk County Division 2 title.

“We had the best team this program has ever seen,” Petti said. “When the quarantine halted the season, we didn’t know what to expect, so we all decided to keep training on our own. The girls took initiative and never gave up. Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. The more time that passed, the less hope we had of having a season and seeing our seniors perform one last time. With four potential All-County athletes and three All-League-caliber runners and throwers, these seniors wanted nothing more than to get back on that track and win. When the season was officially canceled, even though we were so heartbroken, the underclassmen understood we had to give our seniors a special send -off, and they did. We are proud of these amazing athletes as exceptional students. We wish them all the best in their post-high school endeavors and will miss them tremendously.”
