          I discussed the issue with others at school and conferred with some parents of seniors. The decision came a few days before news reports of skyrocketing cases of infections and hospitalizations, particularly in states that had relaxed guidelines for gatherings earlier than Kentucky. While unpopular with some, Governor Beshear’s leadership has helped Kentuckians to fare better than those in surrounding states.  

          What causes me great worry is the rapid growth of infections among young people. Many of these infections, experts say, are related to outdoor gatherings. While the young may be able to handle the infection better than other age groups, and may not show any symptoms of infection, their passing it on to parents, grandparents and others in vulnerable conditions presents a grave danger.

          While talking with the parents of some seniors, we also acknowledged that having this gathering so soon before many of them head off to college was not a good idea. Their lives have been disrupted enough since March. Why risk having any of them become sick and have to miss the start of college because of this event?

          As we make plans to begin the 2020-2021 school year, our worry continues. Work has been underway for months to change what we do, so in-person classes can occur. If we are able to open in mid-August, it will be under conditions very different from what your son experienced the last four years, this includes book sales, classes, Opening Mass, sports, retreats, etc.

          I have a friend and two cousins who have been hospitalized with COVID-19. You may know of others who have. My son-in-law works in a hospital on Long Island. An alumnus who is an infectious disease physician has been providing us guidance. He has treated more than 100 infected patients. From these others I have learned how ravaging this disease can be.

          We are committed to getting the Class of 2020 together again, hopefully in November, but only in a time when being truly together can be safely achieved. “Together” to me means a Mass in Steinhauser Gym, a reception in Alumni Hall, and the guys wandering the halls once again. Early last spring many universities across the country cancelled their spring commencements and rescheduled them for Memorial Day weekend 2021. At the time I thought they were crazy. They seem very wise now.  

          In good conscience I cannot facilitate or support what we hoped could happen at the end of July. For me it is a moral decision.

          I am sorry for the disappointment it causes. While of little consolation, it disappoints me as well.
