ROCK SPRINGS — Rock Springs High School will be one of many participating in “Be the Light Campaign” tonight at Tiger Stadium.
In a Facebook post, Thomas Jassman, Rock Springs High School Assistant Principal/Activities Director, announced how Rock Spring will take part in the “Be the Light” campaign tonight.
“In association with local officials, Sweetwater County School District No. 1, and Rock Springs High School would like to show our appreciation for our seniors who were not able to participate in their spring activity this school year, as well as show our support of our local healthcare workers, emergency personnel, and all others who are risking their own well-being during this pandemic by participating in the nationwide “Be the Light” campaign.
As part of a national effort, tonight, Friday, April 10, from 8:20-8:40pm, the RSHS Tiger Stadium lights will be turned on as a symbol of our appreciation for our 2020 student athletes, coaches, students, staff, first responders, and service providers that are working every day to make this difficult circumstance better.
The lights are a symbol to show we are thinking of you all and continue to be a positive change in our community. As you are driving by, please take a moment to appreciate those around you as we get through these times together. We do not want any person to get out of their vehicle. Family members that live together should be in the same vehicle. If you feel so inclined to acknowledge their recognition further, please feel free to honk your horn while traveling over the Southside Belt route overpass. This is the best view of the stadium while driving.
Out of respect for our local residences by and near the RSHS, they have kindly requested that you do not honk your horn in front of the school or along James Drive. Cottonwood Street will be closed during this time and local law enforcement will be present, so please remember to make sure you are following all social-distancing guidelines established by our local officials. We thank you for your cooperation with this request.
Furthermore, local officials, District No. 1, and RSHS would also like to extend an opportunity to further show our support of our city officials, 2020 student athletes, coaches, students, staff, first-responders, and service providers by showing how we are social distancing at our own home.
Every Friday evening, we are encouraging anyone to take a quick video, or snapshot showing that they are practicing social distancing while at home. You can then tag this video or snapshot on the RSHS twitter feed @RSHS_Tigers with the hashtag #bethelightWY! As Tigers, we know we are resilient and have always adapted to any situation to make it the best situation that we can. While adhering to these current guidelines regarding social distancing we know we can get through this together. GO TIGERS!”
Sincerely, Thomas Jassman RSHS Assistant Principal/Activities Director
