     Effingham Unit #40 has additional information to share in regards to both Prom and Graduation.  First we certainly feel for the EHS Senior class as the COVID-19 situation has severely affected those time honored events that all Seniors and their families look forward to occurring in the Spring. 

EHS Prom

  • Prom will still be a school sponsored event;
  • Reschedule Prom for Friday, July 17th to be held at the Thelma Keller Convention Center;
  • Voting for Prom Court would be online;
  • Details on ticket sales, etc. still need to be worked out;
  • If Prom cannot be held on Friday, July 17th there will not be a make-up date


  • Graduation ceremony (traditional) re-scheduled for Sunday, July 19th in EHS gymnasium at 2:00 p.m.
  • Graduation practice for Seniors would be held Thursday, July 16th (time TBD)
  • If Graduation ceremony cannot be held on Sunday, July 19th due to COVID-19 issues/Governor direction, there would be some sort of “drive up” ceremony for Seniors.  
  • Administration is working with the Effingham County Health Department on the possibility of alternate events to be held on Sunday, May 31st.  When more guidance is secured additional information will be shared. 

     Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.  Be safe and thank you.
