Precautions will be taken to maintain six foot of distance between participants. If that is not possible, close contact will be limited to less than ten minutes. The traditional Bonfire will be held Thursday night around 8:30pm without the usual StuCo class games. The Parade/Pep Rally will be held on Main Street Friday afternoon at 2:30pm. The crowning ceremony will begin at 6:30pm before the football game against Rock Hills at 7:00pm. In an effort to keep a six foot distance between students, this year grades 4-8 will not participate in homecoming activities. Students and parents are asked to wear masks and honor a separation of six foot. Our goal is to enjoy homecoming festivities while keeping everyone healthy and out of quarantine.
