Schools across the state like Madras, Ontario, Phoenix, Bend, Mt. View, Culver, Corvallis are all participating in support of their students.  More schools will be joining with some participating nightly and others participating on just Friday nights throughout the school year. Lights are on one minute for each day of school missed during this pandemic. The stadium lights at Madras’ Stampede Stadium came on at 20:20 hours (military time)  in honor of our 2020 graduating class.  This class will have endured and prospered in ways that have not been experienced in a lifetime. Here at Madras High School we want to say thank you to all of our students and especially our student-athletes who have to date not had a spring sports season. If you see the stadium lights on you will know that we miss the “Friday Night Lights” and look forward to seeing our students again.
