Beaverhead County High School’s Homecoming festivities begin next week, with some changes to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus in the community.

The biggest change will be the traditional Homecoming parade on Friday. There will be no floats; participants will march on foot. The king and queen Homecoming candidates will be on vehicles, Assistant Principal John English said.

Students can participate throughout the week with themed dress up days at school.
