  • Update on Athletic Spectator Policy

    All athletics competitions have a limited spectator attendance policy mandate from Section V based upon guidance from the NYSDOH. Please note the following:
    1. Athletic events are not fully open to the public.
    2. Admission is limited to two (2) family members per student athlete.
    3. Passes are not transferable. As stated above, each student-athlete is limited to two (2) family members, regardless of age.
    4. All attendees must wear a mask, at all times, while at any event. Masks must completely cover the mouth and nose.
    5. Watching an athletic event from outside the fence line is a violation of the NYSDOH guidelines and will not be permitted.

    We know that this is difficult for some families. We need everyone’s cooperation or we risk losing the privilege of spectators and perhaps even our season. Thank you for your continued support of our student athletes and our community.
