Spectator Admittance Update! 9/16/20

Attention Families & Athletes: As of today (9/16), for Renaissance Home Events, we will allow TWO SPECTATORS per athlete.  Please follow the guidelines below:

 At all Renaissance Home Games – there will be a table set up just inside or outside the NORTH gym entrance.  Admittance Fees will be the normal fee of $3/adult $2/child (ages 6-17), and 5 & under is free.  Doors will NOT open until 30 minutes prior to an event’s start time.
We will have a sheet at the door with the roster list of athletes for each team…and when they pay and enter, we will ask who they are there to watch.  ONLY TWO people will be permitted per athlete.  Also – the bleachers will be marked to indicate where spectators may sit.  Sanitizer will be available at the entrance.  Everyone in the gymnasium must wear a mask.  Spectators not wearing a mask will be asked to leave.  This is not something that will be “enjoyable” to enforce…therefore, I ask that all in attendance respect the guidelines.
Once in the gym, we ask that 1) All masks remain on at all times (unless taking a drink), 2) Spectators remain socially distanced in a designated seating area, and 3) the school building is off limits…everyone must remain in the gymnasium or outdoors.
When there are two matches being played in one evening, at the end of the first match, the facility will be cleared so that sanitation and cleaning may take place.  Our goal is to accomplish this in 20 minutes.  At that time, the doors will be reopened, and admittance for the second match will begin.  If you are a spectator for both matches, you will not have to repay to enter…as long as you have your stamp.
We also ask that everyone be respectful, understanding, patient, and remain socially distanced at all times.  If you cannot follow these guidelines, we ask that you remain outside of the gymnasium.
All questions should be directed to the athletic director, Mr. McCausey –
Thank you

Fall Athletics Pictures (Cross Country & Volleyball)

Attention Families: Guys and Dolls will be at the school on October 6 to take Fall Sports pictures.  This will happen immediately after school.  Please make sure your child has his/her uniform that day and is ready for pictures.  Ordering envelopes will be sent home soon.

Student Athlete Drop-off (for practice and games)

When dropping student athletes off for practice and competition, the crosswalks should be used at all times.  Student athletes should not be walking in and out of traffic in the parking lot.  Walk directly to a crosswalk and cross at that point.  This is for the safety of everyone.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Volleyball Update 9/10/20

Student Athletes must use the SOUTH doors of the gym to enter and exit for practice.

We will use the NORTH doors for our entrance and exit for events.  Doors will NOT open until 5:00pm.
