2021 PROM Cancelled
After much thought, consultation, and discussion, SHS has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel Prom, which was scheduled for May 1. The uncertainty of the many mitigations that will be in place combined with the need to finalize plans for the event have led us to this decision. Your continued understanding our need to keep students safe is appreciated.
