KHS Homecoming Dance Postponed

The following message was shared with KHS Families via email on the morning of October 16, 2021:


Like many of you, we have closely monitored the weather for today in anticipation of our 2021 Homecoming Dance. Unfortunately, the forecast continues to call for rain showers and thunderstorms. This inclement weather will impact our ability to safely hold the dance outdoors and in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this event. The Homecoming Dance will be rescheduled to Saturday, October 30th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the KHS Stadium.

In the event that it also rains on October 30th, the dance will take place on Monday, November 1st at the same time and location. If this becomes necessary, we will communicate as soon as possible so that you and your family may make appropriate arrangements.

For now, please know that we share our community’s disappointment. Should you have any questions or concerns, I invite you to contact KCSD Communications Specialist Nikki Laws at nlaws@kcsd.org.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

Principal, Kennett High School
