FARMINGVILLE, NY, AND LAKE RONKONKOMA, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — The senior class of 2020 in the Sachem Central School District will continue the graduation ceremonies on Friday.

Sachem High School East in Farmingville and Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma began the first series of graduations on Thursday.

During the first ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. on the athletic fields outside each building, valedictorians Christian Berberich of Sachem HS East and Melissa Guercio of Sachem HS North gave the commencement addresses at their respective schools.

The remaining ceremonies will resume at 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Over the two days, each school is holding 10 graduation ceremonies—instead of the usual schoolwide ceremony for each building—to allow for small gatherings and increased social distancing because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

All the ceremonies will be livestreamed on the school district's YouTube channel (link). 

Here is the ceremony schedule for Friday at each school:
