  • We will eat pizza in the cafeteria and bottled water will be provided in the stands. Besides the bottle water, any other food or drink is not allowed. Parents may not bring students food from the concession stands.
  • Parents may come to the game to watch students perform at halftime, but you must have a ticket to the game. You can purchase a ticket at the stadium gate or here online.
  • This is a performance, and therefore participation is mandatory and counts as a major test grade. Please email directors ahead of time if you have an unavoidable conflict.
