Weekend Event Schedule for Wicomico Schools Due to Weather: Homecoming Activities Postponed; Saturday Memorial Service for Frank Grate, SAT Testing on as Planned
Due to the recent weather issues, homecoming activities that were scheduled this weekend for James M. Bennett and Parkside High schools have been postponed, and will be rescheduled at a later date. The decision was made Friday afternoon in consultation with coaches, law enforcement, principals, Central Office staff, and others. Among the factors in the decision were player safety, road conditions, and the limited availability of deputies for security due to other responsibilities in the community.
The two high schools made a more detailed SchoolMessenger call to school families on Friday. New dates will be announced by the schools in the near future.
Affected by the schedule change are:
Friday: Homecoming football game between James M. Bennett High and Snow Hill High, at County Stadium (rescheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, at Snow Hill High School)
Saturday: Homecoming football game between Parkside High and Queen Anne’s High, at County Stadium (rescheduled for Monday 6 p.m., same location)
Saturday night: Homecoming dances for James M. Bennett High and Parkside High (postponed)
On as scheduled: A memorial service for the late Frank Grate, former assistant principal of Mardela Middle and High School, took place at Mardela Middle and High at 10 a.m. Saturday.
On as scheduled: SAT testing took place as planned on Saturday morning, at Salisbury Middle School.
