Dothan City Schools will celebrate Homecoming 2.0
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -
After a week of dressing up as their celebrities, decades, and occupations and a homecoming parade, Dothan City School students were ready to cheer on the wolf pack to win over the Cairo High School.
Friday morning, Cairo canceled the game after a Syrup Maker tested positive for coronavirus leaving students wondering what that meant for homecoming.
“I thought that we weren’t going to get to do it at all,” says sophomore attendant Makayla Pardo.
“I was a little sad but you know but I can’t get too mad because of this corona situation,” says senior attendant Jaslyn Scott.
“I was a little disappointed because we that it got canceled because we took so much time to get ready,” says senior attendant Nijah Henry
Dothan City Schools announced Homecoming 2.0 to give students another week to continue the celebration with another week of dress-up days, a parade, ceremony, and game.
“I am glad we got the opportunity to have it again,” says Scott.
“I appreciate Mr. Singleton and everything he does with the school. He does a lot undercover,” says senior attendant Emmanuel Kinsey.
Pushing the homecoming game and ceremony back means the court has to wait even longer to know who will take the king and queen crowns.
“I’m really eager to see if I won,” says Kinsey.
The homecoming court gave the flowers they would have received at the game a new life by delivering them to their favorite and most influential teachers.
“They were so happy to receive them because sometimes teachers' work goes unnoticed. Honestly, we just wanted to give them a chance to feel loved and that they are appreciated,” says Henry.
