Students Hope for Prom

Lewiston High School has faced a year of adversity. Luckily, this year’s 2021 prom may change that and make things feel somewhat normal.
Members of ASB are planning the upcoming dance for May 8 in the high school’s Commons, hoping it will be the highlight of the year.
The theme, The Roaring ‘20s, is inspired by the 1920s era with a nod to the modern-day. Those who want to attend from schools outside of LHS may fill out paperwork in the main office.
Upperclassmen are the featured guests at this event; however, underclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) can attend as long as they accompany a date who is either a junior or senior.
Many COVID-19 regulations, such as wearing masks and social distancing, have not been finalized for the dance yet. However, Nez Perce County must be in Tier 4 to hold this event.
Davey Steele, an ASB adviser at LHS, said, “It’s still very up in the air… We are just going to go ahead and proceed as if we will still have [a prom].”
In anticipation of the possible 2021 prom, tickets should begin to selling around April, priced at one for $15 and two for $20.
