Yes, there will be a Homecoming at Tracy Area High School this year. Although the school had to plan things on the fly because of the pandemic, Homecoming Week has been set for Oct. 5-9 and will include a live-streamed coronation at 9:55 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 9, on the school’s website under streaming events:

Friday’s football game pits the Panthers against Minnesota Valley Lutheran. There is also a soccer game in Tracy at 5 p.m. that day, and the volleyball team will open its season on Oct. 10 at home.

Dress-up days next week are as follows: Monday is “PJ Day,” Tuesday is “Hawaiian Day,” Wednesday is “Class Colors Day,” Thursday is “Mismatch Day” and Friday is “Panther Pride Day.”
