General Information Regarding Home Football Games: Information regarding games will normally be posted on the website one to two weeks in advance. At the beginning of the year, many details are included as procedures and routines are being established and tweaked. As the season progresses, only specific details that unique to the particular venue will be included.
Additional details will be included for each particular itinerary/game. It is also wise to check the website one or two days before the actual event. Sometimes details change or a plan B is added because of unpredictable weather conditions.
Students and parents may park in the music building parking and aquatic center parking lots, but no cars (students or parents) should be in the no parking/loading zones or red curbs located by the music building. These two areas need to be kept clear of traffic for safety reasons. Please drive through parking lot areas slowly in an effort to avoid accidents and injuries.
Water Jugs should be full when students arrive. Water will be available to students to refill during the game. Jugs should only be filled with water - not sports drinks, pop, etc.
Students are required to bring and use flip folders at all football games. A flip folder check will be done at each game and grades will be given.
