rebecca z started this petition to West Islip High School

The class of 2020 is graduating in 4 months and there has been talk among the seniors that the white cap and gown will no longer be an option for some of the graduating class. This has been confirmed by the school. There has not been any communication with the graduating class or their parents  regarding the change. At this point, 2 days before the gowns need to be ordered and 4 months before graduation , if there were issues it should have been discussed earlier in the year.  Particularly that graduation photos have been taken in white and blue gowns.Reason of the switch is because it is unfair that 2 different genders are wearing different colors which shows how we identify so there are no discrepancies. Our school is putting us into blue gowns and as many as you know blue is referred to as a male color just like when a baby boy is born for example. Also white is a gender neutral color which would fit this situation by being neutral. Personally I do not believe it’s fair to be putting females in a blue gown since our graduation pictures are in a white gown!! I believe that we should have the power to pick what color gown we wear in today’s society. My hope is by writing this petition is that our administration staff will take this into consideration and let us have the option of what color we want to wear.  This will truly make the class of 2020’s year a little bit better after getting most of our privileges taken away. By having this petition successful this will hopefully let us go back to our traditional ways.  With all do respect, this procedure should be implemented for the following graduating class. Thank you!!
