Many events, performances and service projects have been either cancelled, postponed, or revised across the network of high schools both in Texas and nation-wide because of coronavirus. This, however, has not prevented the leaders of our student body to rewrite the plans for Homecoming. This year the Student Council of FHS has decided to reinvent the traditional homecoming framework as a result of the infamous virus. The 2020 homecoming dance will be held at the Pioneer Pavilion at Ladybird Johnson Park on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 8:30 p.m – 11 p.m.

 The annual event will seem unfamiliar to some; however, the safety of students and the laws of Texas require an outdoor facility and a spacious area, apt for social distancing. The leaders of the Student Council and the administrators at FHS want this occasion to be exciting and enjoyable for all the attending students. 

“We are so excited to be able to put on a HOCO dance year,” Student Council Executive Secretary Lauren Grona said. “We hope to see everyone there.”
