Children 16 and under are required to be accompanied by an adult in order to be admitted to all athletic events. This will be strictly enforced, and is designed to promote the safety, health, and well being of all students. Also, anyone found to violate the GHSA Code of Conduct, which states “…Profanity, degrading remarks, and intimidating actions directed at officials, competitors, or other spectators will not be tolerated, and are grounds for removal from the event site,” will be banned from future events. Let’s put our best foot forward while also cheering our Irish on to victory! #GoIrish    Student Safety & Wellness: Signing Out Students From School: Students are not allowed to leave campus during the school day without written permission from the parent and approval from the school administration..
