Based on recommendations by the governor's office and the OHSAA we will only be permitting immediate family members of athletes to winter athletic events until further notice. Immediate family includes parents, grandparents, and siblings with a MAXIMUM of four spectators per athlete. Each athlete must let Mr. Williams know prior to the game who is attending and those spectators will be added to a roster. When that person gets to the gate his/her name will be on the roster beside their athlete's name and will be highlighted. Only those on the roster will be permitted. This only applies to home games. Each school is responsible for coming up with a system. We will let our athletes know the spectator policy for each school as soon as we get that information.
National Honor society induction will be streamed via Facebook live in case there is an issue with the YouTube link. Since the stage is off the basketball court we’re not sure it will work like it should so we are going to broadcast by Facebook also
