Let’s be honest for a quick minute, the Class of 2021 has suffered the most throughout this pandemic.  They were faced with a senior year that consisted going to school for half of the week or never entering the building at all, some sporting events cancelled, no band competitions or choir concerts, no fall and winter theatre—the list could go on forever.

So why, as the State of Connecticut reopens, can’t the Wethersfield High School Class of 2021 have a GUARANTEED graduation at the Wethersfield Cove, as traditions follow?

The time, date, and place for the WHS 2021 graduation has all been scheduled, but a rain date has not.  Traditionally, the school would host an indoor graduation for parents and students, with the rest filmed for others to watch, if it were to storm on the day of.  However, this year, the school system has decided that instead of a rain date where friends and family could actually attend, they have decided to make the backup plan a three-shift graduation where no spectators would be allowed.

What do the parents of kids who can’t drive do?  Do they drive their graduate to the school and watch the stream from the parking lot?  What about the students who have been waiting for months to celebrate something with their family and friends?

Tell the Wethersfield Board of Education to set at least one rain date for the WHS Class of 2021 commencement ceremony by signing this petition.
