Ridgewood High School officials are not pleased with the behavior of the graduating class of 2014, and are withholding their diplomas until representatives of the class make a public apology.
The school posted an announcement on its website Wednesday, the day after graduation ceremonies, demanding representatives from the class attend the School Board meeting at 7 p.m. June 4 to “make a public apology for the disrespectful and insubordinate behavior displayed by many members of the Class of 2014 during the Graduation Ceremony.”
Diplomas will not be available for pickup until 8 a.m. June 5 if the apology is made, according to the website posting.
The post states graduates with extenuating circumstances who need their diplomas should contact Director of Student Services Jennifer Snyder at email@example.com. Proof of the circumstances, such as plane tickets, immediate military enlistment or moving out of state, will be required, the post states.
