Homecoming drive-in postponed

In an effort to try to improve student morale but also keeping everyone safe, StuCo arranged for a drive-in movie night in place of the traditional winter homecoming dance.

Mother Nature had other ideas.

StuCo had set up a movie night Saturday at the Starlite Drive-in, but it had to be postponed due to weather. Temperatures Saturday are predicted to be in the single digits with a wind-chill below zero and snow.

“It was just that there was no way people would socially distance at a dance,” StuCo co-sponsor Jenny Meirowsky said. 

Other Homecoming activities are going on as planned, though. Students decorated hallways Saturday. Tuesday is pajama day. On Thursday and Friday, students have the option of dressing up in brightly colored Hawaiian-themed clothing. The Buff Puff volleyball game will be Wednesday. Spectators won’t be allowed, but StuCo is attempting to livestream the event. Homecoming coronation will be Friday during halftime of the boys basketball game.

“We have been trying to find ways to still make homecoming week fun and interactive for the candidates and school population.” said junior StuCo member Abigail Shurts, “So like most cases this year, we have modified what we normally do to make things COVID friendly.”
