Montgomery County News, Arkansas -

Superintendent White announces attendance policies for this week’s football games against Perryville

Junior High Football at Mount Ida – September 3rd   7:00 PM

The junior high football game will be general admission ($ 5.00). No presale tickets will be necessary.  We want all Mount Ida fans coming in through the field house side gate.


Senior High Football at Perryville – September 4th    7:00 PM

Mount Ida fans are only allowed a certain number of ticket vouchers for home and away senior high football games.  Therefore, for the game at Perryville on Friday night, the parents and guardians of the players will get their ticket vouchers first.  Parents and guardians have until Tuesday to let the coaches know how many ticket vouchers they need (up to 4 maximum). Ticket vouchers will then be distributed through coaches and players to parents.


All remaining Ticket Vouchers will be available to the public for pickup at Mount Ida True Value Hardware on Wednesday at Noon until Friday at 5:00 pm.  Please pick up only one per person as vouchers will be limited.  True Value Hours (7:00am- 5:00pm)


What to do with my ticket voucher-

You must take the voucher and $5.00 per voucher to pay at the gate. Please play the gatekeeper with correct change to limit exposure.  (You will not prepay for vouchers at True Value.)

If you have a AAA pass you will not need a Voucher for this game.


Covid-19 Guidelines for attendance:

The Arkansas Activities Association and Arkansas Department of Health has made it clear to School Districts across the State that everyone must comply with social distancing and masks guidelines if we are going to be allowed to start and FINISH athletic seasons.  If masks are not worn and guidelines are not followed, those in violation will be asked to leave the stadium and could even lead to a stop in the game.  We of course don’t want this to happen, but these are the guidelines set forth.  Masks must be worn at all times unless consuming food or drink.  We also ask that fans and students please stay in their family pods and designated social distancing areas, and refrain from gathering in unmarked areas around the stadium. Parents, please keep your students and children in designated social distancing areas.  We also ask that if you do not wish to abide by these guidelines, we encourage you to remain at home and listen to our game broadcast station 105.3 FM.

We appreciate your cooperation with this situation, as we want our student athletes to not only start the season, but FINISH the season.  We also want our other sports to be able to take place after football season, so that is another reason why it is so important that we all comply with these guidelines.  Thank you again.
