Football Game Date Change

Our Football schedule has been adjusted!

The home game previously scheduled for Friday, November 27 (after Thanksgiving) is now on Wednesday, November 25 (before Thanksgiving).

Because of this, we need to know how many Band students will be able to attend the game.

If the date change means you will be absent from the game, it WILL be excused but please fill out this Google Form by Monday, 10/26: https://forms.gle/ivKEzhSEZkvwiRkq5

IF any RISD teams have to quarantine and a game has to be rescheduled, then the home game currently scheduled for Friday, December 4th would move to Monday, November 30th and the make-up game would occur on Saturday, December 5th. We will notify you if this ends up happening!

Homecoming Mums

If you placed an order for Mums/Armbands through the LHHS Band, they must be picked up Monday starting at 3:30pm outside the H-building (former Freshman Center) entrance!

Please help us spread the word to anyone else who ordered!
