Could corona virus postpone prom to September? What would that be like?
If schools end up having to postpone prom to September for the senior class of 2020 it could be kind of a weird situation with students flying back to their old hometowns to attend prom coming back from college campuses to revisit their old high school campuses.
Would this potentially “reactivate” the corona virus due to all that extra traveling given that people from all over the world are on college campuses that are likely infected, and returning alumni interact with current high school students at the postponed proms and potentially re-infect the high schools.
How late can prom be postponed without it causing more problems to have the prom at all?
If proms are postponed until after a vaccine is developed, the presence of older students at high school proms who have been at college who likely have access to Alcohol and both Illegal and Legal drugs could potentially make proms more dangerous.
If proms are postponed to next academic term would New Years Eve or the Winter Solstice be possible times to host the proms? Would those likely be the postponement dates?

Students are not going to travel back just for prom. Especially those who have graduated. Prom is cancelled, not postponed

You say that if your proms are postponed until later in the year it would be 'kind of a weird situation'.
Well DUH! Haven't you noticed that the whole world is in 'kind of a weird situation'?
Proms are way, way down on the list of potential international and domestic catastrophes

In most places, students in college aren't going to come back to high school for a prom.
It is sad that in many places it is likely that proms will be cancelled. But, if people would minimize contact with others (stay at home, social distancing, etc) we could control it and proms could possibly happen. But since that is not happening as much as it should, this will linger. The San Francisco area is not seeing a dramatic rise in cases because of the mandated shelter in place (which still a lot of people aren't following) has limited contact substantially.

I think that you can assume that unless it can be scheduled for early August at the latest prom just won't happen for 2020.
It's not a mandatory event.

They are going to make everyone repeat last year so you will have prom in the spring of 2021.

I think you can basically write of everything for 2020.

COVID-19 is likely to cancel all activities like that until summer of 2021. Prom is not happening in 2020. This is because it would come back, just as the Spanish flu did in 1918.
