New crowd control policy in place for HCHS football games

SoVaNow.com / October 12, 2010
As a result of several safety concerns being expressed to the Halifax County High School administration and Halifax County School Board, a new procedure for fans attending home football games will be put in effect for Friday’s game with George Washington High School.

This procedure was developed following a meeting on Oct. 6, with local and state law enforcement and HCHS principal Albert Randolph and athletic director Allen Lawter.

Specifically, all spectators are required to be seated in the bleachers unless they are visiting the concession stand or restroom facilities.

Secondly, the area in front of the home and visitor bleachers will be posted as a “no standing” zone. This restriction will be enforced by school administrators assisted by law enforcement officers.

And thirdly, all elementary students must be accompanied by an adult in order to be admitted.

This new procedure is not intended to interfere with a spectator’s enjoyment of the event, but to insure that everyone can enjoy the game in a safe, secure environment.
