High schools find ways to honor seniors in wake of COVID-19

by DrewLUD


Prom is one of the signature high school traditions students can look forward to before crossing the graduation stage. 

However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the annual dance across many districts in the country, including Delmarva. 

Though many school districts have returned to the classroom, holding events like prom has become unrealistic due to CDC guidelines that restrict the number of students traditionally participating in an indoor prom setting. 

Rather than cancel the dance, some schools have found unique ways to honor their senior class. 


Parkside held its grand march and prom at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center with the theme "City of Stars" on Saturday, May 18th, 2019.

Parkside High School will host an “unProm” on May 28 at the Jolly Roger Amusement Park in Ocean City from 7 to 11 p.m. 

The event has been advertised as a formal way to honor the senior class. No one over 21 will be allowed entrance.
