Grayson County HS announces attendance policy for fall sports games

In a release on Friday morning, Grayson County High School announced the attendance policy for games this season.

The KHSAA recommended that attendance numbers follow a 20% capacity. To work with that number, the high school says that they are allotting four tickets per player on both the home and away team’s roster.

A limited number of student tickets will also be available at the gate for each event.

When attending the event, all attendees will be required to wear masks “at all times.”

The full release by the school is as follows:

“The number 1 priority of the Athletic Department is to get our student athletes back to playing the games they love. That being said, some sacrifices will have to be made.

I want to personally thank Mr. Julian Tackett of the KHSAA for the resilience he showed throughout this process. All his decisions were based on what was best for our students.

The governor of Kentucky and the Kentucky Department of Education has given guidance on how we can return to high school athletics safely.

Masks are MANDATORY for all people who attend an event at all times.

Social distancing is MANDATORY. Families who live together can sit together in pods. Each pod will need to socially distance from each other.

Contact tracing information is MANDATORY and temperatures will be checked at the door.

We can only operate at 20% capacity at all of our venues. We know this will limit the opportunites for our loyal fans. K105 will still stream most HOME events for free. The capacity number can change in correspondence with COVID-19 data.

At this time we will have NO general admission.

We are allotting 4 tickets per player on both the home and away teams roster. We recommend that players offer these tickets to family/guardians first. Then distribute the tickets however they would like. Admission is $5 for all ages at this time.

We will offer a limited number of student tickets at the game for each event.

Road games- our coaches should be in contact with the opposing team and should pass along information on how the hosting school is handling the same situation. We do not want people to drive 50+ miles and not be able to get into a game. Check with your coaches about attendance for road games. Please.

In closing, I would like to thank our Board of Education and our coworkers at the high school for the support they have given us. I would like to thank my coaches for the ever changing environment that we are going through. They have put in so much time and effort for our student athletes. Finally, I would like to thank the 3rd Region AD’s for all the help and support they have given me throughout this process. Nobody has the right answers to this situation but if we support each other we will get through this pandemic. 

Student-Athletes go out there and be great.”

K105 will have live streams of football games and select soccer/volleyball games. You can watch it live for free on K105’s Facebook or YouTube.
