GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) -- On Friday night, some students will lace up their cleats.

But dozens will step on the football field with their dancing shoes this Saturday.


In an effort to curb Covid-19 spread, Green Bay East High School is hosting a homecoming dance outdoors at City Stadium.

Almost every Green Bay student learned virtually last fall. So this will be East High’s first homecoming dance in nearly two years.

The district requires masks on school property, while leaving it optional outdoors. It's one of the reasons organizers chose to have the event outside.

East is the first GBAPS institution to bring back the dance.
