Salute, historic Senior Classes of ’20.

Quarantine meant changes. You all have seen plenty.

New guidelines about soap, sanitizers, and bleach.

“Do not hug or shake hands!” “Maintain six feet from each!”

“Got any toilet paper?” was frequently asked.

“No, hopefully, next week,” came a voice through a mask.

Remote PC learning. Netflix bingeing at night.

But no prom. No spring sports. No graduation rite.

Those changes taught Life Lessons, apart from your school.

You’ve matured! Keep on growing! Make that your new rule.

Quit sheltering in place! You’re unique as those months!

And 2020 visions graduate but once.
