4th Annual First Responders Night Postponed To October 12th
The most anticipated and attended event on the campus of Howell each year is the First Responders Night football game that recognizes our military and First Responders while raising money for the Backstoppers. The past three years the Howell community has raised nearly $6500 at First Responders Night. Last week the game was forced to be moved to Thursday due to the weather and all festivities surrounding the First Responders Night Game were canceled. The First Responders Night Game and festivities have been rescheduled for October 12th as our Vikings take on Holt. We hope that all Viking fans can come out to support this great Howell tradition that brings so many different groups together for a great cause.

Youth Spectator Guidelines For 2018-19 School Year
As we begin the fall season and our highly attended "Friday Night Lights" the FHSD would like to remind all parents and students of our youth spectator guidelines that are in place to ensure the safety of students and fans at all FHSD events.
All students and children currently enrolled in the eighth grade and younger must be accompanied and directly supervised by an adult to be admitted to or remain at the event. Students and children are expected to remain under the supervision of the adult that they are attending the event with.
Youth spectators as described above will not be admitted to the stadium without a designated adult. Any youth spectators without a designated adult will be held outside the stadium until their parents come to pick them up or accompany them into the game.
Accompanying adults are asked to maintain diligent supervision of those youth spectators for which they have assumed responsibility the entire contest. Any youth spectators found to be without adult supervision will be returned to the adult(s) they came to game with. If their adults are unable to be found, they will be held outside the stadium until a responsible adult comes to pick them up or accompany them back to the game.
