“It is great to have a full week of plans,” Dr. Stuart said. “We will do the homecoming dance in the high school parking lot as we did at prom last year. We will have tents available in case of rain. There also will be music and will be like a regular homecoming dance, but just be outside. Because of COVID, some things will be modified to keep the event safer. We are still working out details but we will bring in some food trucks and some food will be donated. We will have our annual bonfire on Thursday.”
