Superintendent's Update - Sept 1 - Football Season Info

Stadium Seating & Ticket Options

September 1, 2020


Dear Dragon Community,


Like many things this fall, football season will be very different. With ADH restrictions on seating and distancing, bleacher seating in DRAGON Stadium will be at 15% capacity. While we want everyone to be able to watch our Dragons play, cheer, and perform, as a necessity we will be limiting tickets and giving our parents of players, cheer, band, and our students first priority.


We are in the process of establishing on-line ticket sales through the district website. Advanced ticket sales will be necessary to offer priority ticket sales, minimize contact, avoid lines and congestion, and limit ticket sales to available seats. In the meantime, for this week, we will have paper ticket sales. Stay tuned for more information about on-line ticketing as it is available.


Tickets will be limited at home and away games. Do not assume tickets will be available at the gate for home or away games. Your understanding and patience is VERY important to us, as is your support for our teams. Wear the BLUE and cheer for the Dragons, even if from afar. We are DRAGON STRONG.


Sincerely,


Dr. Debbie Atwell

Superintendent
