New Guidance on Spectators at Sporting Events

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has released new guidance permitting schools to increase the number of spectators allowed at sporting events. Therefore, for the remainder of the school year, the district will allow up to 200 people to attend outdoor athletic events.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • Should the 200-person maximum become an issue at athletic events, the spectator badges previously provided to athletes’ families will provide priority admission into the event.
  • Spectator badges may need to be utilized at away games, should a neighboring district restrict admission
  • Spectators will still need to wear masks and respect social distancing guidelines during events.

The Sailor community has been exceptionally respectful of the protocols put in place regarding spectators at games, and we thank everyone in advance for their continued understanding. With last spring’s season completely cancelled, we are very happy to provide this opportunity for extended family members to enjoy watching their loved ones at spring athletic events.

We do ask that all families remember that this information is subject to change, as it is based on NYSDOH guidance.
