Umatilla High School will be hosting a prom. Due to Covid restrictions, the dance will be held outside on the tennis courts this Saturday, May 15th from 8-10 pm. Due to it being a dance related event, there will be loud music playing during the event. We know this may be disruptive for a couple of hours in the evening, but hope you understand the excitement we have in providing our juniors and seniors the opportunity to have a prom. Thank you for your understanding.
