WENATCHEE — Wenatchee High School announced Friday it’s postponing the annual senior prom to an uncertain date.

Graduation ceremonies remain set, for the time being, at the already-scheduled date of June 5. The school announced the decision through its official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

“These are strange times, historic times, that fell at the worst of times for you, as seniors, in the spring of your final year,” the statement reads.

Officials say the prom date will be worked out with the WHS Associated Student Body. Graduation remains on schedule assuming the ongoing coronavirus pandemic restrictions are lifted as expected.

The Wenatchee School District also announced cancellation of its May 20 District Arts Festival.
