Reminder - No School for students on Friday, October 28th

Congratulations to the Blue Devil Varsity Football Team

Congrats to the Blue Devil Football team on making into the post season. The Gaylord Blue Devils will face the Mt. Pleasant Oilers on Friday, October 28th at 7:00 PM. Gaylord fans interested in attending should review the document we received from Mt. Pleasant below:

Friday night's game vs Gaylord is an MHSAA tournament event. This means passes normally

used for home MPHS events will not be accepted. The only way to attend the game is by

purchasing a ticket through GoFan. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased here:

There will be card readers on site if you would prefer to purchase with a credit card at the gate.

This may require you to wait in line. The preferred method is to purchase tickets on your phone through the GoFan link above.

Please read the following safety protocols that are in effect for home football games. Arriving

15-20 minutes early is suggested in order to avoid delays in security checks.
