Homecoming events cancelled due to COVID-19

With the COVID-19 Pandemic still in full swing, BHS decided to cancel the homecoming dance and Homecoming Parade, due to social distancing and CDC guidelines.

Luckily, there will still be a Homecoming week, with Dress-Up days, Powder Puff game, a pep-rally outside, decorations of the locker bays, and crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen.

With over 700 students back in-person, I see no reason why the school could not come up with a socially distanced Homecoming dance that has a strict mask policy, COVID screening before the dance, and hand washing stations.

With everything the admin has done for us this year, I feel that they could put together something to end a rough year on a good note.

Another Homecoming event that was cancelled was the Homecoming Parade. I feel that we should have the parade, because it is outside, it is easy to social distance and it is a tradition for students, and families. If we are allowed to have members of the community come to sporting events, that bring members of the community to a closed event, We should be able to have a Homecoming Parade.

The district is doing everything to make the community and safe and healthy place, and I do understand that COVID-19 is a deadly virus, but with everything that has been cancelled due to the virus, I think we should be able to have a dance and a parade.
