Batavia High School 2016 Homecoming Week—you’re invited

Batavia High School’s Homecoming Week starts on Mon., Sept. 12, with several community-oriented activities planned, including:

Homecoming Parade: On Wed., Sept. 14, (time to be determined), the parade will begin at River St., head west on Wilson, and end at Batavia High School. The entire community is invited! If there is inclement weather, the cancellation will be made one hour prior to parade start time, and will be posted on the BHS and district websites, Twitter and Facebook feeds. Unfortunately, due to police regulations and logistics, the parade will not be rescheduled.
