Plans for graduating seniors:
- May 27 – Senior Book Return & Graduation Gown Distribution – All tuition must be cleared and all books must be returned in order to receive your graduation gown. Social-distancing protocol will be in effect.
- June – Graduation – We are planning two separate events, a virtual graduation that will either be recorded or live-streamed, and a senior parade where students will be driving through the parking lot in their gowns in order to receive their diploma. More details to follow as we finalize dates and procedures. Senior grades and transcripts should be finalized by the first week of June. Remember all tuition and fees must be cleared in order to process transcripts and provide credits with the New York State Department of Education.

PAST UPDATES FROM ST. PETER’S
Update from Principal Cosentino on April 11, 2020, at 10 a.m.
Dear St. Peter’s Faculty, Parents, and Students,
Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a safe, healthy, and happy Easter. I encourage you to read this Easter prayer put together by Mr. Castellano which gives us hope and keeps us together during these trying times.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the photos from the #EaglesEndure challenge. It is inspiring to see so many of you staying faithful, working hard, and being active. Keep those photos coming!
Here is a tentative school schedule to answer some questions and concerns as we look ahead in anticipation of a return to our normal routine.
Once again, thank you to all of the members of our community that are on the front lines each day and our prayers go out to all suffering at this time.
God Bless and Happy Easter to all!
Original campus closure announcement from Principal Cosentino on March 13, 2020:
Dear St. Peter’s Families,
With the health of our students as our top priority and per the directive from the Archdiocese of New York and the NYC Board of Education, St. Peter’s Boys High School will be closed until April 20 out of precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition, all athletics, extracurricular activities and school functions will be postponed until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor this unprecedented situation and will update our families as soon as possible of any further changes or closures. Our faculty will continue to provide our students with online education through Plus Portals. It is the students’ responsibility to keep up with all classwork during this trying time. I have faith they will be able to do so. As always, we appreciate your support of St. Peter’s Boys High School and pray for good health for you and yours. We encourage our students and families to remain strong in our Catholic faith and are reminded to live our lives in faith and not fear.
Mr. Michael Cosentino
