Homecoming Court presentation delayed to Oct. 23


The presentation of this year’s Homecoming Court and the crowning of the Homecoming Queen has been delayed by two weeks.

Due to Hurricane Delta, disruptive weather is expected to interfere with Friday night’s homecoming game and the pep rally on the football field during the school day. Ms. Suzanne Eskrigge, one of the faculty members in charge of homecoming this year, said that this was due to the best interest of the student body and all who are involved with the event. Delaying this event is the only way to ensure that the homecoming experience can be enjoyed by the student body, faculty, parents, maids, and the maids’ family. 

In an email to homecoming maids, Ms. Eskrigge and Coach Mariclaire Nix, another faculty member involved with the presentation of the homecoming court, wrote, “Due to the uncertainty of Friday’s weather and in the interest of making this experience for our maids as memorable as possible, our Homecoming Court presentations both at the pep rally and at the game have been moved to Friday, October 23, when our football team plays Parklane Academy.”

In the midst of a pandemic and incoming hurricane, events are having to adapt quickly. The Homecoming Dance is scheduled for December 12, which was pushed back from its original date of Friday, October 9. The school and faculty are working hard to ensure that as many events as possible can happen this year to the best of their ability in the midst of these tough circumstances.
