The Arkansas Department of Health has issued an updated directive regarding large indoor venues to ensure that COVID-19 remains controlled and that people remain safe.
This directive covers venues for a gathering of people such as a prom. Several requirements must be observed such as but not limited to 1) maintaining a distance of 6 feet between people, 2) seating must be arranged to maintain 6 foot distance, and 3) face covering required for all persons present.
Due to the difficulty to produce a large event such as a prom at the El Dorado Conference Center with guidelines as written, the Smackover High School Prom scheduled for July 15, 2020 has been cancelled.
While this is not what we envisioned or planned for prom, we will continue to move forward and wish you a safe summer.
