HOCO 2022 - Go Wildcats!

Greetings Megan,

Excitement is building with 2022 Homecoming Week almost upon us. Our student organizations and staff have planned many notable activities for us to celebrate!

In addition to these school-sponsored activities, some of our students participate in unsanctioned evening activities. New London-Spicer Schools does not support or condone any reckless behavior, vandalism, or illegal behavior by our students in the community.  I support and encourage conversations with your child about expectations and behavior. Together, we can promote a safe and enjoyable homecoming with consistent and lawful expectations that will lead to an enjoyable experience for all. 

I encourage you to review and discuss the legal parameters and possible consequences of inappropriate actions with your child and inform them of the county ordinance regarding trespassing with intent to litter which carries up to a $300 fine.  Please report concerns/incidents to law enforcement as you would during any week of the year.

I want to thank you for your partnership in providing a safe, fun, and memorable homecoming experience.



Bonnie Spohn
