Homecoming News from Mr. McKenzie Being a Lamphere Alumni I still have many fond memories of participating in Lamphere’s homecoming activities. Homecoming is a very special time at Lamphere High School and as we draw close it is a perfect time to have a conversation about expectations during homecoming week. Between the parade and pep assembly, the game, and the dance we want students to have fun but we want it to be good clean fun. During the week we will not lower our high expectations of behavior and want kids to have fun but in a positive way. We expect students to be alcohol and drug free at all events. We will have a breathalyzer a present at all events. Students must follow school rules at float host houses. We expect are students to have proper decorum at our dance and make sure their attire and dancing is appropriate for a high school setting. Sexually expressive dancing is not allowed which includes but is not limited to straddling legs, bending over, and inappropriate touching. We will be reviewing our dance expectations with the students. Please come out and attend the festivities and let’s make this a homecoming the whole community takes pride in.
