Here are our rules for HOME Middletown High School sporting events:
For outdoor events only, each participant and cheerleader will be allowed TWO fans in attendance. Those names will be placed on a gate list for admittance at the entrance to the Faller Field stadium complex. Strict COVID protocol will be enforced on the grounds, including mask wearing and social distancing. Spectators from visiting teams will not be allowed.
Keep in mind, we are working toward having all home events livestreamed. We will post those links in Facebook and our district website. For indoor events, spectators will not be allowed. There will be no exceptions.
We are on another full remote pause for MHS until Monday, February 8th. No practices or competitions will be conducted at this timeWe have FamilyID scheduled to open for High-Risk Winter sports tomorrow, Jan. 30th, at 8 AM. The registration will close on Feb. 5th, at 8 AM.Please know that the registration is open for only high-risk sports (Boys and Girls Basketball, Cheerleading and Wrestling). FamilyID cannot be partially open as it is not set up for that so when the program opens, there may be families registering for low-risk winter sports for which their season's registration period is officially closed. We are not accepting new registrants for low-risk winter sports 2021.Due to the nature of this time, the system in place is not set up for the perfect- case scenario, however, we are confident that we can work together to make this a positive.
