Update: Homecoming 2020 Canceled
March 10, 2020
The Homecoming events scheduled for March 20th and 22nd have been canceled. The health and safety of our school community are of utmost importance to Holy Names High School. While there are no known cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on campus, the Homecoming celebration honors many of our seasoned alumnae who are most at risk of contracting the virus.
The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and several Bay Area counties have recommended “social distancing” and canceling group events to protect seniors and people with underlying medical conditions. In an abundance of caution, we considered all of this and made the decision to cancel Homecoming 2020.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a fluid situation with information being released hourly. For that reason, we have made the decision not to reschedule, and instead, we will celebrate all of the honor year classes next year at Homecoming 2021. Your ticket will be held for next year and we will have all of the same festivities for the celebration classes of 1940 through 2015, including our 50th anniversary class, 1970.
We know this may be disappointing to some, and we share in the disappointment that we cannot celebrate our honor classes this year. However, we put health and safety first, and we will have a particularly special Homecoming to celebrate next year.
We hold our global community in prayer, and most especially those affected by the virus, healthcare workers on the front lines caring for the ill, and the researchers and scientists working towards a vaccine. Holy Names graduates are “women of faith” and we will pray and care for one another.
If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 510-450-1110 x138. In light of this extraordinary situation, if you prefer a refund instead of having your ticket held for next year or offering it as a donation to the school, we will honor your request.
