“Operation Prom” New London High Students to Participate in Immersive Accident Scene

The New London Community School District released a letter to parents regarding a new event for high school students.

On March, 27, 2024, New London High School is hosting “Operation Prom,” for all 9th-12th grade students. This will be an immersive event that brings the realities of prom season to life. Students will have the opportunity to see the realities of what takes place at an accident scene.

Students will be part of a simulated accident and emergency response, providing a hands-on experience of the potential consequences of risky behaviors. As well as students and law enforcement, medical personnel, firefighters, life flight crews, and funeral home representatives will be on-site to interact with students.

The training will focus on smart decision-making, safety, and understanding the consequences of choices made during celebratory events.

Operation Prom is designed to create awareness and foster responsible decision-making among our teens during prom season. A way for parents to get involved is by supporting your teen’s participation and discussing the importance of responsible choices.

If you have any questions, need more information, or you would like to opt your student out of the learning opportunity please feel free to contact Mr. Kracht or Mrs. Wagner at 319-367-0500.

Some of the material may be graphic in nature since it will be a simulated accident scene.
