Guidelines for attendance:

The Arkansas Activities Association has made it clear to the 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. 

Masks must be worn at all times unless consuming food or drink. Fans and students are asked to 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.  Administrators also ask that if you do not wish to abide by these guidelines, please remain at home and listen to the game broadcasts on 105.3 FM.
