Westwood High School prom, previously scheduled for April 4, has been postponed, according to a March 20 email. Prom has been rescheduled for The Oasis restaurant on May 16.

Round Rock High School announced March 23 the delay of RRHS prom. Originally scheduled for April 25 at the Georgetown Sheraton, prom has been rescheduled for May 16 in the RRHS cafeteria.
The venue cancelled the event, according to the school’s announcement, due to a Williamson County ban on gatherings of 10 or more people effective until May 11.
“As it would be extremely difficult to find another venue under these circumstances, we have decided to hold prom in the cafeteria at Round Rock High School on May 16,” said Jill Wetzig, RRHS prom coordinator, in a March 23 email. “I am working closely with our other vendors to make the change, and to make this a beautiful and fun event.”

Round Rock ISD launched the Home Learning Hub March 22 for use in at-home learning during extended school closures amid concerns about COVID-19.
“This is a challenging time for everyone, but we hope that by providing learning activities for students to participate in from home we can help bring normalcy and routine and give students and parents resources to maintain educational progress,” said Mandy Estes, RRISD chief of teaching and learning, in a news release.
Round Rock ISD’s Home Learning Hub includes grade-level resources designed to provide “optional enrichment,” per the release. Classes have been canceled from March 23-April 3.
“These resources were designed with choice and flexibility in mind and to keep students actively engaged in grade level content,” Estes said. “Students are encouraged to engage with core content activities daily.”
In addition to the e-learning options, RRISD is providing printed packets at curbside breakfast and lunch distribution sites for students who have limited access to devices or the internet.
