Anne Arundel County schools cancels proms this year

Anne Arundel County Public Schools will not hold high school proms this spring, according to Superintendent George Arlotto. Arlotto said the decision was made out of an abundance of caution because the deposit payment deadlines are approaching and there is no way of knowing whether COVID-19 cases will be at a safe level by the time prom usually occurs. Arlotto said he and school leaders continue to meet with principals and students to work on options for graduation ceremonies.
