If the event does have to move indoors, each student will get six tickets for the chair area on the gym floor and there will be a first come, first serve seated bleacher area.

For either an indoor or outdoor ceremony there will be a live broadcast of the ceremony available in the auditorium for any other overflow, said graduation coordinators Sanda Weber and Laura Colombo.

As part of the commencement, several students and officials will speak, including valedictorian Christina Rice, salutatorian Katelynn Leavey, Superintendent Mark Bessen, Principal Jim Donnelly and John Shaw, president of the board of education.

The school band will play “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters, as well as “Pomp and Circumstance” and the “Star-Spangled Banner,” and the senior members of the chorus will sing a song.
