The Class of 2020 and 2021 have had rough Senior Years. The class of 2021 has not been able to live out their senior year of high school like most people get to. This year, to compensate for the fact that the class of 2021 has had nothing go in their favor and has been given the short end of the stick, Bishop Kelley has decided to give us a prom. The "prom" will be in our courtyard on hard and bumpy cement, under a giant tent. Not to mention that the time has been shortened by 2 hours and ends at 10 p.m. instead of midnight like it usually would. Along with that, we have had absolutely no events this year that you would expect a senior class to get. We have not had homecoming, an aloha dance, no pep rallies, limited attendance to all sporting events, and many other activities that make Senior year special and meaningful. We understand that COVID-19 has a lot to do with all of this but, Covid cases have been dropping in Oklahoma as well as three vaccines that have been introduced into the community to combat the spread. We ask you now, as a last-ditch effort, to give us something other than constant quarantines, missed opportunities, constant stress, and limited social interaction among our peers to remember our senior year. The class of 2020 was lucky enough to get a junior prom but was cheated out of a senior prom because of covid, but the class of 2021 has not been given the same opportunity. There is an opportunity now, while cases are trending down and vaccinations have been given out, to give us what we have been looking forward to since our very first day of Freshman year, a formal prom. The memory of a senior prom lasts a life-time. From the expensive formal wear and professional pictures, having a prom outside in the courtyard takes the fun and excitement out of this now once-in-a-lifetime event. This is the last opportunity that we have to get together as the Bishop Kelley Senior Class of 2021 and have a night to remember. Also, a question that comes to mind is why is being confined in a tent any better than being confined in a hotel conference room where we usually have our prom. I sincerely request that you take into consideration what I, as well as the rest of the class of 2021, have stated above and pray that you have a change of heart and grant us the one last chance that we have to create a good memory of senior year that we can take with us for the rest of our lives.
