NEW ORLEANS - MAY 12: Cabrini High School junior Danielle DiMaggio (5th L) and boyfriend Ben Navo (3rd L) pose for a photo at the Cabrini High School prom May 12, 2006 in New Orleans, Louisiana. DiMaggio's house was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina and she currently lives in a trailer with her father while her mother and brother are still displaced in Lafayette, Louisiana. DiMaggio and every girl at Cabrini High School are wearing dresses donated by 18-year-old Marissa West from Beltville, Maryland to their prom. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

CMS announced that there will be no prom this year. I feel really bad for the high schoolers! Another year lost to this crazy pandemic! To me, the prom was a right of passage. It was a way to say “good-bye” to high school itself. It wasn’t just about the actual prom either. It was about the suits, dresses, putting together enough money to get a limo, and figuring out where are we going after the prom.

Prom, like graduation to me, is something that you’ll always remember right? Like you’ll never forget your date, what happened that night and there’s a good chance you’re still FB friends with your date.

So CMS has pulled the plug on the prom, with all things considered it’s probably the right thing to do. I wish it wasn’t this way, but it is. I hear Lincoln County and some others will be hosting senior proms only this year.
