Prom is Looking Promising This Year

Olivia Fresh and Amiah Owen

Clear your schedules juniors and seniors, for May 8th! A day most high school students have looked forward to since childhood, is now impacted by masks and Clorox wipes. With prom being canceled last year due to COVID-19, this year will be a bit different to keep everything as safe as possible.

The Prom Committee’s plans aren’t completely set in stone. Their thought process was with the assumption that the people who are attending will go out to dinner with friends afterward, meaning they don’t know exactly what protocols to put in place. During the event at the Red Barn, they’ll make sure everything is sanitized before they open the doors, and will continue sanitizing tables throughout the night. Instead of having 10 people to a table, it’ll be limited to about five to six. In order for the event to take place, they will be asking people to wear masks. So, will you be matching your mask to your ties and heels?
