Kenosha school district's new policy allows limited people to attend high school sporting events in person
KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Kenosha's school district has come up with a policy to allow a limited number of people to attend high school sporting events in person.
When the football season opened last Friday at Bradford High School, no fans were allowed to sit in the stands. But at a school board meeting Tuesday, Sept. 20, a policy was approved that would allow two spectators per participating athlete into the games. The same goes for students in a related activity, such as cheerleading or dance.
"We're dealing with people (and) it's a people business and there's always gonna be things that we can't predict," Kenosha Unified School District Athletic Director Bryan Mogensen said. "But I can assure you that we've been working very closely with our people that staff these events and we're generally gonna be meeting people with a smile and saying hey, this is the expectation, this is what it takes to get these kids on the field."
Fans will need to socially distance and masks will be required.
This policy is similar to the plans adopted in Oak Creek and Franklin.
