Any person in possession of a prohibited item will be asked to return the item to their vehicle before being allowed to enter into the facility.
All spectors must go through a security check-point before entering into the game.
All students in grades K-6 must be accompanied by an adult.

Inclement Weather-. Early Dismissal

Due to the severe weather threat on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, we will dismiss at 2:00. This decision was deemed necessary due to the concerns about the safety of our students and staff who may be on the roads when the weather is predicted to reach our area. I understand the inconvenience this may cause with instructional plans, however the safety of our students and staff members takes priority in this case. Please make any necessary adjustments. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
