Students at Athletic Events

While we encourage all Panther fans to attend events to support our teams, it is important that parents be available to pick up students in a timely manner. When weather issues arise, it is also critical that parents be close enough to the event to pick students up before weather issues present a dangerous situation.

Home Football Games: Start at 6:30, Student Pickup NO LATER THAN 8:30

Away Football Games: Start at 5:30, Student Pickup NO LATER THAN 7:30


Please make sure your student has a backup plan if you will not be able to arrive at the event by the times indicated above. If students are late being picked up they may lose the privilege of attending future events.


Thank you for your help with this!
