2020 Homecoming Plans Remain Uncertain

By Orr, Kylee

September 04, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent IHSA season adjustments have brought an uncertainty to school sports. As the PHHS coaches prepare for fall contact days with athletes, there are questions among students about what the future holds for both their favorite sports and their favorite extracurricular activity:  Homecoming. 

In "normal" years, football is played in the fall, and Homecoming is celebrated at the end of September or beginning of October. September is usually dotted with Homecoming meetings and conversations about Spirit Week; however, this year there is a quietness that high school teachers are not used to as students continue their focus on schoolwork and academic plans.  Guidance Counselor Beth Arnold reports that upperclassmen have started exploring college admissions and future plans earlier than usual. 

While no one knows what the future holds for schools, sports, or extracurriculars, Homecoming plans are currently on hold. Athletic Director Kylee Orr said the administration has discussed extracurricular activities such as Homecoming but is not ready to release any decisions as it is too early in the school year to make definite plans. Fall contact days begin Monday, September 7. Winter sports begin practices on November 1. Football and volleyball are scheduled to begin practice in February and contests in March.
