Mid-Prairie announces cancellation of prom

Posted

There will be no prom at Mid-Prairie High School this year.

In a June 3 email to parents and students, Principal Jay Strickland announced the prom cancellation.

“Obviously, this was not an easy decision as we were hopeful that we could have prom this summer, even if we had to make some changes and adjustments to how it normally looked in the past,” Strickland wrote. “After meeting with the Washington County Health Department and the other Washington County high school principals, we decided this was the best course of action for all schools.”

The prom, originally scheduled for April 25, had been moved to June 20.

“I apologize for the delayed announcement as we wanted to wait and see if additional guidelines would be lifted before making our final decision,” Strickland wrote. “I did want to say a special thank-you to the post prom committee for all of their hard work and efforts. Despite postponing the event a couple of times, they were still willing to put together a post prom event.

“That is an example of the strong support we receive from parents and the community.”

The school is still moving forward with plans for a June 28 graduation ceremony, which will be held on the football field at 2:30 p.m.
