The Parade Will Go On

The Yankton School Board has approved a limited liability waiver that should allow the Pioneer Days homecoming parade to proceed. An earlier proposal would have done away with traditional floats, and instead have students walk the parade route, holding signs. Yankton High School Principal Dr. Jennifer Johnke (jon-key) said those in the parade will have to sign waivers…

School district lawyer Mike Marlowe said the board had some choices in liability waivers…

School Board member Sarah Carda said a partial waiver may be the best course…

The board voted five to zero to allow the partial waiver for parade participants.
