The Georgia Department of Health (DPH) recently issued updates and guidance regarding COVID-19. In part, the guidance states the following:

CDC Guidance on Public Events and Group Gatherings To protect the public’s health and wellbeing, the Georgia Department of Health is recommending large, crowded gatherings or public events that include 50 people or more be postponed or canceled. These events include concerts and conferences, as well as professional, college and school sporting events. The Department of Health is recommending smaller gatherings held in enclosed spaces that do not allow social distancing also be postponed or canceled or held virtually. When possible, attendees should be no fewer than two-arms-length or six feet apart. Elderly adults and those with underlying health conditions who are at a greater risk for COVID-19 or respiratory illnesses should avoid attending large public gatherings.

With this new information, we regret to inform you that the 2020 Prom is cancelled. This decision was not made lightly and we sincerely apologize for the great inconvenience this will cause our students and families. Wilkinson County Schools remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff, and community.
