Project Safe Prom 2021

“You Hold the Key”

The LFHS Prom Committee of students and APT parent volunteers are busy planning Prom 2021 “You Hold the Key.” The 2021 planning process presents unique challenges as we re-imagine the event, given mandatory regional restrictions and safety precautions. However, we are optimistic that, with your help, we can provide our Juniors and Seniors with the memorable evening they deserve.

This year’s prom will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2021, at Lake Forest High School. In the past, prom has been held off-campus at a hotel, where everything from seating to security is provided onsite. In an effort to create a safe prom that follows all socially distanced guidelines, the evening will take place on our beautiful front lawn. Students will arrive to the event and be broken up into small groups, while masked and distanced, at the staggered start and finish times, moving through a variety of stations (“scenes”) throughout and around the school. A tremendous amount of careful planning is ongoing to ensure a safe and memorable experience. More details will be shared with the community in the coming weeks.

We’re confident this prom will be fantastic; however, this venue requires a shift from what Project Safe Prom has represented in the past. Project Safe Prom traditionally asks LFHS parents and community members to demonstrate their commitment to the safe transportation of students and chaperones to and from the prom location. This year, prioritizing safety requires us to raise funds for an entirely different list of needs.

We envision a bright, festive celebration unlike any other LFHS has ever seen. Expenditures this year include, but are not limited to, onsite security, outdoor tents, sanitization stations, lighting, rental furniture, catering, and a few touches to make the evening truly special. Keep in mind, our prom is completely self-sustaining. We rely solely on donations and ticket prices. No district funds go toward this event.

A donation of any size is much appreciated. All donors will be acknowledged on the Project Safe Prom donor list. Donations at the $500 level and up will also be acknowledged during the traditional Red Carpet portion of the evening, which will be live-streamed for family members to watch.
