Status of Prom
An email update from Irondale High School
April 17, 2020
Last week we shared that it has become increasingly difficult to expect all spring events to occur as planned, including prom. After much thought and discussion, we have made the difficult decision to cancel prom which was scheduled for May 9. This decision was made due to the concerns and uncertainty around large-group gatherings related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Should the current conditions change rapidly, we will consider planning an alternative event before May 29, although we believe this will be very unlikely.
Please know that this decision was not made lightly, and that student health and safety is our top priority. The loss of events like prom disappoints all of us, and we anxiously look to the future when our school can reopen and our school community can gather together again.
We miss you all!
