Dear Reynoldsburg City Schools’ Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,
Friday, our Reynoldsburg Raiders play their opening home football game. It is
an exciting time for our District, our players and our community. Showing our
Raider Pride and supporting our young athletes is extremely important for all
of us. It is our top priority to ensure that we do so in a family-friendly,
inviting, and safe environment.
years ago, we began enforcing a no-bag policy and utilized crowd control
barriers under the stands. These efforts will remain in effect this year. The no-bag policy is limited to those of school
age only (18 years old and younger). The duty to prove age will rest on the
ticketholder. Furthermore, we will continue to deploy crowd control measures
under the stands to encourage free movement, reduce congestion, and enhance
establish a standard of expected behaviors, signs are posted throughout the
stadium. These posters are in place as reminders that home sporting events are
a time for us to come together and support our Raiders while displaying pride
in our community and schools. We will not permit nor condone unsafe,
disruptive, or harmful behavior. Some of these expectations include (but are
not limited to):
- Spectators are asked to remain seated in the stands during the game. Loitering or gathering in the aisles, concourses, ramps, entrances or exits is prohibited.
- Smoking, including the use of electronic cigarettes or other intoxicants, or possession of alcohol are not permitted.
- There will be no roughhousing, running, fighting, use of profanity, or acting in a manner considered to be: offensive, threatening, insulting, humiliating, embarrassing, disruptive, obscene, sexually explicit, gang related, or violent.
- Any violation of the student code of conduct or the creation of an unsafe environment or condition will be grounds for removal from the game without ticket reimbursement.
are hoping that with your help, it will not be necessary to implement
additional measures. Together, we will create a positive image for visiting
fans and a safe environment for students, staff, and community members. Please
assist us by speaking to your child(ren) about appropriate and acceptable
behavior while attending school sponsored events and remind them that no bags
will be permitted in the stadium. Thank you for your understanding and
continued support. Go Raiders!
