After a challenging year, our seniors have had to adjust and forgo many fun events in their final year of High School.  I believe we all are very happy that Prom 2021 will happen. However, with the current situation they have many rules to follow making it look much different than past proms. In years past, there has been "Senior Skip Day" after prom.  A day off granted to seniors (without repercussions).  This year they are not having a Senior Skip Day.

This is addressed in the Prom Code of Conduct (see below):

#17 (of the many rules listed) in the Prom Code of Conduct is "Attend school on the first school day following the weekend after the Prom according to board and school policy."  The code of conduct also states "if (code of conduct rules) not adhered to by a senior student (it) will result in disciplinary action that may include suspension and/or loss of the right to participate in all senior activities, including the graduation ceremony" 

Given the many hurdles and challenges our kids have had to overcome this year it would be nice to grant them this privilege as seniors.  Let them enjoy prom weekend and celebrate all the wonderful things they were able to accomplish during this past year.  There are no finals this year and all AP exams will be completed by Prom weekend.  To allow them to miss one day of school would not cause a delay in studies as their year is basically finished by then.  Let's reward them for persevering in 2021 and give them a Senior Skip Day as they have done in the past.
