This Friday (April 17), schools around the state of Washington will turn on their stadium lights at 8:20 p.m. (20:20) to honor the senior class of 2020 which had its season cut short due to COVID-19. The WIAA stands with all the student-participants affected and is asking member schools to share a photo or short video of their illuminated stadium on Friday evening.
We encourage communities to celebrate the 2020 senior class in accordance with the current statewide social-distancing orders and not gathering at the venue. Every school will undoubtedly put its own spin on what the celebration looks like, but no exceptions should be made to the social-distancing order. Please make these tributes fun by making them safe!
