Colorful lights illuminate the gym at Fort Vancouver High School as students keep their distance while enjoying music, dancing and time with friends at the 2021 prom May 22. Some Clark County school districts did not permit traditional proms this spring for a second consecutive year because of COVID-19 safety restrictions. Others forged ahead this spring doing modified events or parent-driven pop-up proms not sponsored by schools.

“I wanted to come for the experience.”

That experience is prom with an asterisk, COVID-19-style.
