For the remainder of the season, no student without a valid Millwood Public School District I.D. will be admitted to the district’s games and no minor not accompanied by an adult will be admitted to games, said Dr. Cecilia Robinson Woods, superintendent.
In addition, Supt. Woods said the district reserves the right to deny entrance to games anyone deemed to be a safety risk.
“There will be no exceptions to this new policy for admission to our games,” she said.
“We feel that taking this approach will allow us to have better control of our environment and create a safer experience for everyone,” the Millwood superintendent added.
“We are all aware that it takes everyone in our community doing their part to ensure that we have safe events for our students to compete,” she explained.
“Sadly, I worry that without an intervention to our current event protocol, we may fall short.”
“Our No. 1 concern everyday at Millwood is safety,” Dr. Woods continued. “We pride ourselves in building positive relationships with our students, which help us to anticipate issues and/or trouble.”
“We cannot however predict issues or trouble when we open our doors to the general public,” Supt. Woods stated.
“So, it is with the utmost concern for our students and our community, that we have decided to institute a policy prohibiting any minor not accompanied by an adult from attending any of our final three home games this season.”
