Will the class of 2021 have a better end to their senior year than the start? Will there be a prom or graduation? How many more times will we have to close? These are some of the many questions seniors keep wondering as we get closer to the spring.

In a completely normal year, the spring would be an exciting time as seniors get ready for prom and graduation, but this year looks a little different. With more and more people beginning to get vaccinated, is it a possibility for seniors to come together to end their year?

“I do believe there is hope because of the fact that the vaccine is out. I feel that it guarantees our protection for a more normal end of year than it was last year. I think graduation will still be socially distanced and not normal. I think there is hope for possibly a prom that could be outdoors,” senior Hayley Watts said.

“I think the worst part of losing our senior year is not being able to participate in the big social events that were traditions in years past. We missed out on having senior sections at football games, homecoming, and the senior paint war," Senior Nicole Mandak said. "Senior year is supposed to be fun and somewhat relaxed, but everything has come to a halt,” senior Nicole Mandak said.

Another frequently asked question is will we close again and for how long? So far this year, the high school has closed/gone remote many times due to COVID-19 cases in the school. Some closings only lasted a couple days while others were a week or two. Many question if the school year will end similarly to how last year did in a complete closure, but hopefully with the vaccine, seniors will have a different ending.

“I feel like it will depend on the number of cases and the vaccine coming out. I’m not sure if we will all be able to be in the building at the same time. I hope that we have a somewhat normal end of year” senior Isha Thakkar said.

There is still hope for the end of the 2021 school year. While it may not seem possible for all seniors to return to school together, students still hold on to the hopes of having a prom. Seniors also seem to think graduation will be similar to last years where the class is split in half, limited viewers, socially distanced, and most likely outdoors.
