On Friday, April 17, the Selinsgrove Area School District will begin honoring the Class of 2020 and supporting the nurses, doctors, and first responders on the front line of COVID-19 by lighting up our high school stadium at 8:20 pm (2020 hours).

Schools across our nation are taking part in the "Be the Light" Campaign.

Each Friday at 8:20 pm through the end of May, our scoreboard will display the score as 20-20 in honor of this year's graduating class, while 4th Down and 19 Yards to Go will be displayed as the down and distance signifying COVID-19 is on its final down.

Please note that supporting residents are NOT permitted on stadium grounds during this time and should remain at home. If people are compelled to support this initiative from their homes, get your favorite noisemaker (cowbells, horns, etc.) or rally towel, poms, etc. and take a selfie picture or video, post it to your social media site.

We cannot stress this enough, supporters of this initiative should NOT travel onto school district property.
