Winter Activity Spectator & Game Personnel Information

October 26, 2020

WINTER ACTIVITY SPECTATOR & GAME PERSONNEL INFORMATION

 

We are excited that we have been able to remain learning face-to-face so far this school year, and for winter activities to begin at Nodaway-Holt. It is our ultimate goal to keep our teams on the court and to provide a safe environment for them to compete, as well as to also provide a safe viewing environment for our fans, students, and parents.

 

As of today, our plan is to allow fans to watch our winter home athletic contests. This decision is subject to change on the guidance we receive from the local Health Department. The Nodaway-Holt School District does not have control over the procedures, guidelines, and restrictions that opposing schools put in place for their home events. We will communicate our plans with opposing schools and will inform you of any and all plans that opposing schools have in place prior to a contest.

  1. Bleachers will be open and social distancing practices will be strongly encouraged.
  2.  Families should sit together in the bleachers and social distance from non-family members.
  3.  Masks are not required, but highly recommended.
  4.  Two rows of bleachers directly behind each team’s bench will be roped off to ensure social distancing and each team’s safety.
