Havre High students and faculty decorate the school hallways Monday for homecoming.

Amidst the cancellations caused by COVID-19 and restrictions in the schools, Havre High School hasn't let that keep it from celebrating homecoming week.

"Our goal was to try and keep it as close as possible as we could to a normal homecoming year here at Havre High," Havre High School Assistant Principal and Activities Director Brian Kessler said.

He said the big things that are going to be missing this week are the homecoming dance and there won't be a pep rally and assembly.

Spirit week is still taking place along with the dress up days, he said.

Monday and Tuesday were Twin Day and today and Thursday are Retro/Throwback Day.

Kessler said students started decorating the hallways Monday night, which will then be judged by the cafeteria staff to see who wins.

Pep Club Advisor Jane Warp said that after school Friday, students are also  decorating their cars and the winners get to drive them into the game on Friday, for which people are urged to wear blue. 

Presentation of the homecoming royal court and the coronation of the homecoming king and queen will be Friday before the football game, which begins at 6 p.m. with gates opening at 4:30 p.m. for people who have pre-purchased tickets, Kessler said.

The royal court is:

• Freshmen - Carson Harris and Mackenzie Dean

• Sophomore - Gavin Hall and Alice Nelson

• Junior - Ethan Durward and Sophie Kirkpatrick 

• Senior boys - Joey Byrd, Kellen Detrick, Carson Lunak and Dylan Young

• Senior girls - Kennedy Hampton, Alexis Haney, Makayla Lindbloom and Tamera O'Leary

Kessler said the court will also be presented Saturday at the volleyball game that starts at 4 p.m.

Warp said people can wear white and blue for the volleyball game.

"I'm glad that we are able to celebrate some of our traditions," she said. "I'm sad for the students who normally play an active role in so much more."

  Kessler said they are trying to keep homecoming week as normal for the students, adding that the excitement it brings to the community is huge.

"Homecoming is something that brings pride to the school and gets you excited about doing something," he said. "... I love the excitement homecoming week brings. There always seems to be more giddiness and just kids are a little more happy during this week, they get to be a little goofy with their dress-up days and the teachers do too. It's fun to watch the teachers interact and go all out and dressing up."
