November News Wrap-Up

By:Reese Allen/Content Editor

November was a busy time at Blue Ridge High School, even though halfway through the month students and staff were switched to the remote learning model. Despite this, annual school events still took place.

The annual coat drive for the public took place on Tuesday, November 11, while Blue Ridge students had the opportunity to pick out coats November 6-13. More than 300 coats were given to community members while observing COVID-19 precautions. According to family/consumer sciences teacher Kristen Latting, “more families participated than in the past few years.”

This year wasn’t the normal Veteran’s Day breakfast and assembly that Blue Ridge students and staff typically celebrate with a large gathering of veterans. Instead, on Wednesday November 11, COVID social distancing protocol resulted in students serving breakfast via a drive through delivery style. Patriotic signs decorated school windows while students held signs with messages to honor veterans as they passed through the drive through. Veterans left with bags full of breakfast foods and fresh coffee. Left over food and coffee went to the American Legion Post 357.

Scheduled food deliveries for students and families in the Blue Ridge school area were cancelled when the cafeteria staff was quarantined. That quarantine ends on December 16.

A food bank was held on November 17 to help families get ready for Thanksgiving dinner. A total of 80 turkeys were donated by Blue Ridge teachers and staff, and 100 families attended the food bank. 

The deadline for seniors to submit their senior pictures for the yearbook was announced in November. Digital images must be submitted by Friday, January 17 at: and use the access code BRSD.
