- All spectators should engage in appropriate behavior during the Football Game.
Spectators, specifically young students, should NOT:
- Play touch or tackle football in the end zones;
- Engage in fighting or play-fighting;
- Sit on or climb on fences or any surrounding equipment;
- Go in the wooded areas around the concourse;
- Misuse the bathroom and/or vandalize the bathroom facilities.
Any student who cannot meet these expectations will be removed from the game and not allowed to attend games for the rest of the season. We strongly encourage parents/guardians of middle school and elementary school students attending the game to accompany their children at the game. There is no admission charge this year!
Milton High School also takes the MIAA Sportsmanship Policy extremely seriously, especially taunting. Taunting includes any actions or comments by coaches, players, or spectators which are intended to bait, anger, embarrass, ridicule, or demean others (players, coaches or officials), whether or not the deeds or words are vulgar or racist. Included is conduct that berates, needles, intimidates, or threatens, based on race, gender identity, ethnic origin, or background, and conduct that attacks religious beliefs, size, economic status, speech, family, special needs, or personal characteristics. Those who are found taunting players, coaches, or officials will be removed from the game and not allowed to attend games for the rest of the season.

Health Screening Updates
Massachusetts General Law, chapter 71, section 57 with related regulations 105 CMR 200.000 mandates that school nurses do periodic screenings of vision, hearing, growth (height and weight), and posture. Bill H.4056, section 97 requires schools to conduct annual verbal screenings (SBIRT) for substance use. Pursuant to these regulations, MPS nurses screen students according to the following schedule:
- Vision: Grades PK-5, 7, and 10
- Hearing: Grades K-5, 7, and 10
- Growth (Height and Weight/BMI): Grades 1, 4, 7, and 10
- Postural (Scoliosis): Grades 5-9
- SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment, more information linked here): Grades 8 and 10
Parents/guardians will be notified if a vision, hearing, or postural screening requires further evaluation. Included in this notification will be a request for a report from your healthcare provider of their findings so that the nurses are aware of any problems which may interfere with learning and can accommodate any needs that are identified.
Parents may choose not to have their children participate in any or all screenings. Please notify your school nurse in writing by October 1, 2022 if you wish for your student to opt-out of a screening. This must be done annually.
If your student is receiving treatment for a vision, hearing, or postural concern, please provide Shannon Aikey, email@example.com with current medical documentation of their condition.
Instrumental Lesson slots are still available! If your student is in grade 4 and above and you were unable to register for music lessons, please reach out to program director Rebecca Damiani at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out which instruments still have available time slots.
