WOODLAND — Woodland High School students celebrated homecoming on Oct. 15 for the first time in two years, thanks to more than a year of planning and the use of outdoor tents and donated space heaters. After the Beavers’ home football game, students held their first dance since the pandemic started, in tents erected on the school’s quad area. The tents will remain set up throughout the school year so students can enjoy meals and breaks regardless of weather. To ensure student health and safety, all attendees wore masks. Teacher Shari Conditt, who is the school’s ASB adviser, said “Initially, we were unsure whether students would need to wear masks. However, when we spoke with students, they all agreed that they would much rather wear masks if the alternative meant not having a dance at all.” In addition to the dance, homecoming week included traditional spirit days and new activities including a door-decorating contest.
