Graduation Now Indoors – Important Changes

Dear Class of 2021 families:

Due to the weather forecast for tomorrow, the Sussex Technical High School graduation ceremonies will be held indoors. We made this decision today to allow families time to plan and for logistical reasons. One important change is that each senior will be allowed three guests in the gym, using the three green tickets

An outline of how our indoor ceremony will work:

·         Graduation will be held in the gymnasium. Each graduating senior will be allowed three guests to attend in the gym, using the three green tickets seniors were given today.

·         Two guests per student will be allowed to watch graduation via TV broadcast in other areas of the school, using the two orange tickets seniors were given today.

·         The ceremony will also be livestreamed for family and friends to watch from home. The link will be available on tomorrow.

·         Guests should enter the school by the transportation (bus lot) entrance. Guests with two orange tickets will be directed to the cafeteria and Commons areas. The building will open for guests at 5 p.m.

·         Seniors must arrive at the 800 wing in cap and gown by 5 p.m.

·         The ceremony will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

·         Masks will be required to be worn by everyone, and three feet of distancing should be observed for non-family members. Temperature screenings should be conducted at home prior to arrival. Persons with symptoms of COVID-19 should remain at home and watch on the livestream.

·         Seating for persons with disabilities will be in the front row of bleachers.

·         Parking will be available on campus and in the field directly across from the high school. Please follow the direction of police and staff on site.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow, and thank you for your continued patience. We hope you enjoy this celebration of your seniors’ successes!
