Football Games Attendance Rules
According to Executive Order 1520 all non-participants must wear a mask to athletic events. Also, attendance is limited to 25% of the stadiums seating capacity. Parents, our goal is to not have to turn people away. We value the importance of family participation in all of our events. Please be considerate and help us make this happen!
- Students may not attend football games unless they are accompanied by their parent and they have a sibling who plays plays football, cheers, or is on the dance team.
- Children are not allowed to play ball in the open areas. This is a safety issue. Please leave tennis balls, footballs, etc... at home. Non-participating children must sit with their parents during the game.
- All attendees and non-participants must wear a mask.
