In a Facebook post, a parent claimed: “Omg what a horrible graduation ceremony… So you treat the families to these kids like we were criminals why?”

“They locked him out and I had already given them his ticket. Wow very sad that this happened and he wasn’t the only one locked out.” said the Facebook post.
