To all High School and Junior High Directors/Secretaries,

After many months, especially the past two, hours of planning by staff, weekly calls with the Executive Committee, weekly calls with the Lancaster staff, writing Covid procedures and visits, we felt we were on the path of moving forward with our high school finals.  Even as late as this past Wednesday on our weekly call with The Lincoln staff, we felt this was something we were going to be able to accomplish.

Thursday evening I received notice from Lancaster Event Center, along with a letter (attached) from Rick Tast, Assistant City Attorney, that they would not allow the finals to take place in Lincoln in July. That means we are not going to Lincoln, but today we are in postponement mode.  We will spend the next couple of days calling a few known venues to check on availability and if their state health department would allow us to come, we will not drag it out and will continue to update you.

I am so sorry for the staff, all directors and secretaries and especially the special young people that make up this association.

Please be assured that each of you are in our thoughts and prayers and we so much appreciate all your labor of love for our association.

God Bless,

James Higginbotham

Executive Director
