 Francis Howell High School Varsity Football

Youth Spectator Policy-2011

Effective immediately and to better ensure the safety and enjoyment of all spectators attending varsity football games at Howell Stadium, any student under the 9th grade must be accompanied and directly supervised by an adult to be admitted to and remain at the event.


Accompanying adults are asked to maintain diligent supervision of those youth spectators for which they have assumed responsibility.  All youth spectators found to be without adult supervision will be directed to return to the direct supervision of  the adult(s) they came into the event with.  If their adults are unable to be found, they will be held outside the stadium until a responsible adult comes to pick them up or accompany them back to the game.

We appreciate your cooperation and efforts to enhance the event experience for all of our community and guests. Dave Witter, CMAA; FHHS Activities/Athletics Director
