Due to increased virus activity in the county, masks, are now required to attend indoor Athletic Events. Masks are now required at football games, unless social distancing by family. Those with medical conditions that prohibit the wearing of masks would be exempt.
Homecoming Coronation Update Just a reminder we are moving the Coronation Program on Wednesday, September 30th, to the Football Field -- weather permitting. We will utilize the original plan as our backup in case of inclement weather. That plan is Coronation would be in the Auditorium and not open to the public. The court would have the ability to invite six guests. This will only be used if weather does not allow us to be at the football field for a community event. We will allow the community to sit in the south section of the home bleachers, the middle section is reserved for the parents of the attendants and candidates while the north section is reserved for our High School students. We will require masks where there is not social distancing by family. Community members and families are also allowed to sit on the hill. The stage for the event will be in front of the home bleachers on the field.
