GLOVERSVILLE - The Gloversville Enlarged School District plans to hold its graduation ceremony this Friday afternoon.

Only the graduating seniors can attend.


Governor Cuomo’s executive order limits the number of people at a school ceremony to 150. 

Gloversville has 143 graduates, so no family or friends will be allowed at Husky Stadium on Friday.

Students were protesting that decision Tuesday afternoon at the Four Corners.

Hear one mother explain why she’s so upset by watching the video of the story.
