The Roslyn School district was forced to cancel its homecoming parade Saturday due to forecasted rain. It was scheduled to begin at 12:15 p.m.

The Nassau County Office of Emergency Management will be monitoring Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen, which is expected to hit the North Shore in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The storm is forecasted to bring heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts, minor coastal flooding and rough surf and rip currents.

The varsity football game will still be held, despite the weather, with kick-off at 2 p.m. The Roslyn Marching Band’s halftime show will not be conducted during the game, but the cheer team may still perform if permitted by the weather.

Indoor sports games will still be held Saturday in the high school’s gyms. This includes both boys and girls JV and varsity volleyball games.

Both JV games will begin at 10 a.m., with both varsity games starting at 11:45 a.m. Girls volleyball games will be held in the North Gym and boys volleyball games will be in the Main Gym.

For those unable to attend the games, they will be available to view via live stream. The football game will be on the high school’s outdoor sports YouTube channel, with volleyball games streamed on the indoor sports YouTube channel.

Also scheduled Saturday was a ribbon cutting for the high school’s new track and field at 1:30 p.m., which has been rescheduled for Oct. 17 also due to the weather.

The track and field were reopened to the public Thursday. Members of the public can use the track and field from dusk until dawn, excluding school hours and when after-school events are scheduled.

“This new world-class track and field facility will benefit our physical education and
extracurricular programs, help our students stay competitive, and provide a fresh new
environment for our community members to enjoy,” Brown said in a letter emailed to district families.

The district’s annual pancake breakfast will still be held Saturday at 11 a.m. in the high school cafeteria. Breakfast will be free and open to all community members.
