Mackenzie Szlosek started this petition to Sachem Central School Distrct Administration and BOE

   This year, due to COVID and state guidelines, Sachem Central School District has decided to have 4 graduation ceremonies, at which students sit with parents.
   This structure was completely understandable a few weeks ago, however given the current guidelines and changes in guidance over the last month or so, we are asking that Sachem revisits this graduation plan. Firstly, we request that the seating is a traditional format, with parents in bleachers, and graduates on the turf after a processional. Next, we ask that the number of ceremonies be revised; we believe, based on the current guidelines, number of people vaccinated, and the plans of other high schools, that the number of ceremonies can be reduced to one or two. 
   It makes little sense that starting Monday, June 7, Sachem lifted the mask mandate in its schools, yet we still have strict guidelines in place for graduation. Sachem students, graduates, and parents, we are asking for your help. The class of 2021 deserves a graduation that is as normal as possible. Thank you. 
    Sincerely,

         Mackenzie Szlosek (Sachem East Valedictorian and Student Gov President) 

         Jayden Reilly (Sachem East Salutatorian and Class President)
