Jennings County has had to make multiple changes to its homecoming schedule for the 2021 football season.

Principal Dustin Roller sent out a press release earlier this week announcing all of the changes.

According to the release, the 2021 fall homecoming parade is cancelled due to increased COVID-19 numbers and a pause on large gatherings during this time. For the same reasons, the 2021 JCHS Powderpuff game that is traditionally played following the fall homecoming parade is cancelled as well.

Lastly, the date for homecoming has changed. It was originally planned for the week of Sept. 13-17, concluding with the JCHS football game versus Madison.

Now, it has been changed to Sept. 27-Oct. 1, concluding with the JCHS football game versus Seymour. It was changed “to hopefully offer students more options and fun during homecoming,” according to the release.

Due to this change, Marching Pride of Jennings County Senior Night will be conducted on Friday, Sept. 17th.

Jennings County is currently 0-3 on the season with losses to Norwell, Brown County and New Albany. The Panthers will have games against Columbus East, Madison and Bedford North Lawrence before hosting the Owls on Oct. 1 for homecoming.
