Like many Tri-State schools, teachers and students are still working to navigate the year during this pandemic, but for one Spencer County School, they found a new way to still celebrate the spooky season.

For the last 11 years, choir students at Heritage Hills High School have put on an original "Fright Night" production.

However, with the pandemic, students decided instead to make a music video to share online to the popular song "Thriller."

Teachers say it was an alternative and safe way to still get the full Halloween experience.

"It was a very hard because this is the show the kids really look forward to," says Laura Staffeld, Heritage Hills Chorus Teacher. "We have a ton of fun just preparing for the show and so for me to have to make that call to know I am unable to put them on a stage, 6 feet apart, with masks on for their safety and the community's safety as well."

The show usually helps the school raise money.

Teachers say the show is being rescheduled for Spring 2021.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
