Ability to hang out is cherished
Proms offer chance to gather, cut loose after a dark year

What a difference a day makes.
Students at Cloquet High School found out Friday afternoon that they would not have to wear masks during prom the following evening, AND they would be allowed to dance with anyone they wanted to instead of being limited to a pod of six people. And dance they did, starting out following dance song directions in rows and ending with a giant mosh pit in the school's back parking lot Saturday night.
Senior prom marked Cloquet senior Casey Essler's second formal dance: the first one was Snoball 2020, held a couple months before the pandemic changed the world.
