Even though their prom was canceled, Lansing High School students still have a chance to show off outfits they intended to wear.


Photos of students in prom dresses and other ensembles are being posted on the school district’s website.


Sharon Burns, community relations coordinator for the district, said she got the idea from people involved in the Operation Graduation program.


“They kind of started it on Facebook just for the seniors,” she said.


But juniors also can participate in the prom, so Burns has invited all students to submit photographs.


“I love the idea,” Burns said.


Burns incorporated photos that were submitted to Operation Graduation in the display on the district website. And she has been adding additional photos as she receives them.


The Lansing High School prom would have taken place last Saturday. But the prom was canceled because of restrictions related to the coronavirus.


People can send photographs and the name of the students pictured to Burns at sharon.burns@usd469.net
