“We have a lot of cool things in the works,” junior class president Bronson Kwaku said. “The venue we have is super cool; the inside is really nice. We have a dance floor being rented out, and we have a DJ set up. The view from the inside of the building is super cool. It overlooks the football field and the lights. We have a lot of cool opportunities we can work with this year, despite all the setbacks of COVID.”

Juniors and seniors are also invited to upload pictures of themselves and friends to a Google Form on their corresponding Class of ’21 or Class of ’22 Google Classrooms. Five photos can be submitted at a time, and all photos submitted must be school appropriate.

“We have access to the giant screen on the field,” Kwaku said. “We are planning on having a giant slideshow of all of our students playing the entire time. It’s a pretty cool idea because we normally don’t have access to things like that.”

Along with a limited capacity, all students attending the event will be required to wear a face covering.

“It’s going to be fun, so make sure you show up,” Kwaku said. “Masks, as we know, are going to be required, but that doesn’t really mean much. You can still have a good time with masks on and not have to worry about COVID transmission and all that bad stuff.”

Students are asked to email Sharlyn Pernell ([email protected]), or Paige Tucker ([email protected]) with any questions regarding prom, submitting pictures and COVID regulations.
