The high school honored its Class of 2020 with a spectacular Senior Send-Off on June 10, as students and their families drove through balloon arches in the high school and middle school parking lots while being cheered on by staff spectators as well as the Islip Fire Department and Exchange Ambulance of the Islips. Pop-up tents and tables were set up to distribute yearbook, caps and gowns, and gift baskets, and individual graduate signs were posted on the on grass. A DJ and live drummer added to the celebratory mood.

“The Senior Send-Off was truly a remarkable day, not only for the wonderful students of the Class of 2020, but for the Islip school community as a whole,” said Principal Jon LaRochester. “It is so important to be able to pull all the positives out of the very difficult situation we all faced this past spring, and what was displayed at the parade was simply the very best of Islip. Seeing what this community and the school district were able to do when we came together was very powerful, and It provides hope and continued pride as we move forward toward the end of this pandemic and hopefully towards brighter days.”
