As we have received updated guidance from MMSD, Public Health, and both city and state government officials over the past several days, we will be unable to hold large group school events. Unfortunately, this does include prom, which is now canceled.
We know you might feel disappointed, upset and sad because this is not how you envisioned your last few months of high school. We know Prom is an important aspect of a high school experience and we are sad to have to cancel. We are very sorry that our students are missing out on so much as we face these unprecedented challenges, but the health and safety of our community remains our top priority.
We realize that you have questions about the status of many other Spring events. As a district and schools, we are reviewing each of these events. Our individual school websites are great places to learn more. As a district and as schools we feel an urgency to send this information about Prom due to the planning and financial commitment that comes with attending.
We will do everything we can to help facilitate positive, social opportunities for our students whenever and however, it is safe for us to do so in the coming months. Thank you for your understanding. We are all in this together.
