We still had a few students stay after school, and not let their parents know they were staying. Students, please check in with your parents the night before. If you forget to communicate with your parents, please ask your teacher to use a classroom phone to let your parent know or come down to the office.

Additionally, please know that attendance at away District 15 sporting events is only allowed with the presence of an adult. We also encourage adult chaperones at Palatine HS events, including football games.

Expectations at Sporting Events


Attending Winston Campus home sporting events means you are expected to cheer respectfully. To do so, we…

  • Cheer for our team at appropriate times and are quiet at appropriate times, including when someone is injured and during free throws
  • Use school-appropriate language
  • Don’t say anything to the refs - good or bad
  • No Cell phones Allowed - used with supervisor permission only.


  • Make Winston proud; the choices you make should support our teams, but it should do so positively.


  • Follow directions given to you by staff supervisors.
  • Walk up/down the bleachers and remain seated once you are there.
  • If you need to leave the bleachers to go to the bathroom or to leave for the day, please do it during a break in play with permission from a supervisor. Please stay away from the area of play.

If you have any questions during the event, please ask a supervisor!
