STEPHENVILLE (November 3, 2016) — Mother nature can’t stop Huston Academy from enjoying a homecoming, but it can certainly change the charter school’s plans.

Three inches of rain has made the practice field behind Huston Academy an unplayable surface, says superintendent Mike Scott, who announced Thursday afternoon that plans for the homecoming football game are canceled and the remainder of the planned homecoming activities postponed until a date to be determined.

Here is the full announcement from Scott:

“Three inches of rain at Huston Academy has forced us to cancel this weekend’s homecoming game and festivities. We have exhausted efforts to move it to another local venue, either Friday or Saturday, and have not been successful. Our field is just too saturated and it would not be feasible for us to attempt to play on it. Mother Nature is an instrument of God and they both had other plans. So we are making alternate plans to celebrate homecoming with a meal, awards ceremony and a bonfire at a date in the near future…We are so very sorry for the outcome of what was going to be a special event for our little family…”
