Dozens of local school superintendents are asking the state to allow them to hold graduations and proms.
In an open letter, the group is asking Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker to update the guidance to allow schools to safely hold these events.
The letter said while schools are eager to commemorate milestone events and help students celebrate safely, they will not jeopardize students' health or the public's health.
