As large metro high schools, we host large events and bring community members together to celebrate and support our teams and programs. During these events we are continually assessing and examining our protocols for spectator safety, enjoyment and  security.

SoWashCo Schools appreciates all the support for our student athletes participating in fall sports at East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools. As we begin the fall season for athletic events, SoWashCo Schools wants to remind families of important spectator information:

  • Children, ages infant through middle school must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times during the game.

  • No backpacks or bags are allowed at games.

  • Outside beverages cannot be brought into the stadium.

  • Once a spectator leaves the stadium no readmittance is permitted.

  • Spectators should not bring balls to throw or play with at events.

  • Spectators are not permitted onto the field before, during or after the contest.

  • Students should be picked up within 15 minutes of the conclusion of the game.

  • Positive and supportive sportsmanship is expected at all times. Spectators who cause a disruption to the game or to other spectators will be removed from the stadium.

  • Students from any SoWashCo school who violate district policies while attending our games and events will be subject to discipline in accordance with the Students Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.

  • In case of an emergency, please stay calm and follow directions of the staff at the event.

The Suburban East Conference (SEC) is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all participants, coaches, officials, and spectators. Sportsmanship and fair play are at the center of education based athletics and activities.

We expect you to be positive in your support of our teams. There is no place for behavior that promotes disrespect, hate, or harm to individuals or groups regardless of: race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, ability, home of first language, religion, national origin, age, and/or physical appearance. Any individual or group that demonstrates behaviors that do not support this belief statement are subject to removal from all SEC events.
