High schools across the Island are releasing new guidance on how graduation ceremonies will be held.
After Gov. Andrew Cuomo lifted most of the remaining COVID-19 pandemic restrictions across the state, including those for large outdoor gatherings, many districts across Long Island are expected to host full or less restricted in-person graduations.
Smithtown West’s guidelines currently require non-vaccinated guests to wear masks and limit two guests per graduate.
However, parents of students at the school told News 12 they expect all restrictions to be lifted today for the Class of 2021’s ceremony.
Middle Country School District already announced that it will not limit capacity and not require vaccinations or negative COVID-19 tests.
Some districts, such as Central Islip, are still limiting guests to two per graduate.
William Floyd announced that it will allow a maximum of four guests per person.
