Sarasota County Schools, even though our Governor has ended most of not all Covid-19 mandates our School (Sarasota High) is still required to follow those previous mandates. This includes social distancing, wearing of a facial covering, and quarantining if you’re sick. However it’s very uncalled for that our school board still requires these guidelines and then uses our taxpayer dollars to rent out Ed Smith Stadium, which can seat 8,500 people. With our 2021 graduating class of about 400 or a little more and our schools limit being “4 Tickets Per Senior” that means in total there is atleast 2000 people going to be there, if everyone brings 4 family members. However this doesn’t add up that leaves about 6000 seats available so it does not make sense to limit or restrict the 2021 Seniors on how many family members we can bring. Our school has already canceled; prom, home coming, heavy restrictions on sports events, a good majority of JROTC related events were canceled. With a majority of our last year in high school canceled because of a flu like virus it seems unfair that we have to pick and choose and ask ourselves “who do I bring to graduation?” When it for a fact will be a tough choice because our families have had to struggle with us all our lives and now only 4! 4 people can go to our graduation ceremony? It’s outrageous and needs to be fixed. I’m not going to pick and choose and just sit here and take it anymore, I’m not going to stand by and choose to appease a school district who doesn’t care about my voice or my opinions, my voice will be heard. I propose these limitations are changed allowing each senior 12 tickets, this will make it to where the 400+ in our graduating class have a chance to get their family to the ceremony with no issue and with 12 people per person that is still only 4,800 seats filled which leaves plenty of room to space out and comply to wearing a mask and maintaining some distance, so please help us atleast have one thing go our way for our senior year. Thank you all.
