People are invited to drive by from 7-8 p.m. and see the stadium lights on at Magnolia and Magnolia West high schools, Meyers said.
"This is one small opportunity to recognize how much we appreciate the Class of 2020, all of our spring sport athletes, and our community as a whole,” Magnolia High School principal Greg Quinn said in an email.
Magnolia West principal Ben King said he knows students are missing out on important experiences during the temporary school closure. MISD campuses are closed until at least May 4, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
“On Friday, we will Light the Night to say to our community, students, and most notably our seniors, that we miss them, we are wishing them well and we hope to see them soon,” King said in an email.
Meyers said while MISD hopes everyone can come, social distancing guidelines are still in effect.
“We want to Light the Night to say that while we are all living through unusual and difficult times, there is a brighter future ahead,” King said in an email.
We invite you to drive by and celebrate our students, Seniors and our community during these dark times as we Light the Night on Friday, April 17. We miss our students and appreciate our teachers and staff and know that we are all in this together. #LighttheNight pic.twitter.com/LWPTQ9GYIm
