RE: Student Expectations at Varsity Football Games
Football in Texas is a rich tradition. Every Friday night many stadiums are filled to capacity. Folks of all ages, students, parents, grandparents, relatives, and community members whose fond memories of days gone by enjoy attending and cheering on our own Kountze Lions. In an effort to create a safe and orderly environment for all spectators, the following expectations for students will be enforced for all varsity/JV/middle school football games on Thursday/ Friday nights.
• All school age children are to be seated in the bleachers during the game except when visiting the concession stand or restroom.
• For safety reasons, students will not be allowed to bring balls, toys, or other such items that can be thrown in the stadiums or the grounds.
• Students PK-grade 8 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (a school age sibling does not count) to attend the game. Additionally, the student must be with the responsible adult at all times.
Your attendance and support of the Kountze High School football teams, cheerleaders, band, and drill team is greatly appreciated. The focus of the evening should be the highlighted students on the field and performing. Your support of these expectations is requested so that all fans can enjoy the games and festivities in a safe and comfortable environment. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in the matter.
