The Sheridan School District is proud to honor our veterans with Veterans Days Parades on Thursday, Nov. 11 in both Sheridan and East End. The parades will pass by each SSD campus so all students will have an opportunity to honor those who have served our country. Each parade will begin at 9:00 a.m. with line-up of veterans beginning at 8:45 a.m. In East End, line-up will be at the entrance of the EEE car rider line. In Sheridan, line-up will be at the SES car line off Skyline Drive. (Please note that this is different from original communications indicating that line-up in Sheridan would be at the SHS Yellowjacket Arena.) To clarify earlier communications, while only students are allowed to observe the parade from the district’s campus properties due to safety reasons, SSD encourages community members to line public streets in both communities and show your support of our veterans. In East End, the parade will travel along school property from East End Elementary to East End Intermediate. It will then turn down Sawmill Road and take a right onto Arch Street to East End Middle School. The Sheridan parade route is shown as an attachment. Current weather forecasts indicate a 60% chance of rain. In the case of inclement weather, the parades will be postponed until Friday, Nov. 12. In that instance, notification will be provided in advance – based on forecasts – via social media and the school district’s web site.
