The De Queen High School Student Council announced Halle Harp as the 2020 DHS Homecoming Queen and 26 DHS homecoming maids.
The De Queen Leopards football team will be playing their homecoming game against the Magnolia Panthers on Oct. 30. Homecoming festivities will kick-off with spirit week beginning on Oct. 26 going through Oct. 29.
Spirit days events include: Scare the Panthers Monday (wear your Halloween costume), Don’t Sleep on the Leopards Tuesday (wear pajamas), Way Back Wednesday (dress in fashion from a past decade), It’s A Cat Fight Thursday (Dress in your designated class color for color wars day. Blue: Kindergarten, 3rd, 6th, 8th, 10th; Pink: 1st, 4th, 11th; Red: 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th). School dress code will apply to spirit week.
Due to covid-19 precautions and the day being a virtual school day for the district, homecoming festivities will look a little different this year. The festivities will begin at 2 p.m. at Leopard Stadium with an afternoon coronation ceremony. DHS is inviting students and the community to attend the ceremony at no cost.
There will be no pre-game homecoming ceremony but the homecoming court will be recognized at halftime of the football game.
In order to be in compliance with the Arkansas Department of Health, everyone must wear a mask and social distance at the afternoon ceremony and during the football game.
