Juniors pose at last year's prom. This school year, however, will not feature a traditional junior prom. Rather, the Class of 2021 will hold a senior prom on Sept. 12. "Given the coronavirus crisis, this is the best we could've done," Class of 2021 President Sam Goldstone said.

The junior class’ prom has been postponed to Sept. 12, 2020. The decision was collectively made this morning by administration and advisers and officers from the class executive board.

Moving the date will not incur any additional expenses, meaning that class pockets will not be burdened. The ticket price estimate will remain at $115, the same cost that prom-goers paid last year for Prom 2019.

“Given the coronavirus crisis, this is the best we could’ve done,” Class of 2021 President Sam Goldstone said.

It’s going to be different, but it will still be really fun.”

Some students were worried that prom was going to be canceled entirely, which has occurred across hundreds of schools in the country.

Despite potential travel troubles, invited members of the senior Class of 2020 will still have the opportunity to attend the event if they choose to do so.

“I’m really excited that we can still host an event, and we are really making the most out of a tricky situation,” Class of 2021 Vice President Tali Wong said. “I think September is actually a really good time because school hasn’t gotten too crazy yet.”
