Hello Community Members,
Many of you have already heard that due to a COVID-19 mandated quarantine, Friday nights varsity football home opener against Greensburg has been canceled. The game vs East Central on September 25th, has been postponed. Refunds will be issued for those who purchased a ticket for this Friday’s game. Students, parents, and community members need to return their ticket to receive the refund. Students can bring in their tickets and tickets of family members Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday, for the refund. Refunds will be issued in the cafeteria during lunch. Those student athletes in quarantine can do this once they return.
Although the football team members who find themselves in quarantine will return before the East Central varsity game is scheduled to be played on the 25th, the IHSAA requires four practices before an athlete can participate in a competition. The spirit of this rule is to ensure athletes are physically prepared for competition after missing five or more conditioning opportunities.
This is an unfortunate happening for our community, but I am happy to report that though a large number of us are in quarantine, the health of all involved is good.
Additional information about the rescheduling of the East Central game, homecoming ceremony, and ribbon cutting ceremony for Backman Field will follow at a later date.
We will persevere and the Knights will take the field again.
Thank you for your support!
