Coronavirus Threatens Senior Fun

Big events such as prom, senior awards night, and graduation look uncertain at this time due to the extension of school closures.

Many students, especially seniors, were looking forward to the big end of the year activities. 

“It’s really disappointing as a senior to have two of the most important events in high school to be taken away from you. I can’t think of other ways that’ll make up prom and graduation. Hopefully, if possible these events can be rescheduled to a later date,” said senior Kyle Malinao.

Some students think it’s a probability it won’t happen due to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order that is currently in place.

“I honestly don’t expect the CV administration to do much about prom or a graduation ceremony. I definitely, however, feel as though the community will step up and hold graduation parties or pitch in together to rent out some buildings and have at least some resemblance of a prom,” said senior Conal Mosbaugh.

Others think high school senior graduation is a highly momentous event to honor students and has to happen. 

“I don’t think it’s impossible to honor the graduating seniors with a large celebration. I think we should postpone and not cancel. I feel that once this virus calms down we should still be able to have a graduation,” said senior Sofia Jacoby.

Yet for prom, graduation, and senior awards night there is no clear answer at this time regarding when or if these events would take place.

“We are evaluating our options [for prom] and seeing what possibilities are out there,” said Activities Director Thomas Maloney.

College and Career Center Counselor Allison Zuckerbrow responded similarly in regards to senior awards night.

“As of right now nothing is figured out yet, but we definitely are trying to find a way to honor students,” she said.

It is uncertain what will happen as of right now, but the CVHS faculty is doing its best to find a solution that will be most favorable to students.

    I hope that things turn out alright even if none of our activities worked out.

    I am really interested to see what the faculty eventually comes up with. With everything going on right now, I am not sure if anything equivalent to what was lost can be done.

    I hope that things will be fine and good for the graduation! At least it’s better than nothing!
