VG schools announce IDPH Spectator Policy

The Villa Grove High School District is excited to announce our IDPH Spectator Policy for all IHSA and IESA extra-curricular events under current IDPH Guidelines. While we are not going to be able to accommodate all spectators, or even entire families, we will provide an opportunity for all student-athletes to have representations in the crowd. The following guidelines will be in place and expected to be followed. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in an invitation to leave our facility. 

District 302 Spectator Guidelines 
* Masks must be worn at all times.

   * Failure to follow IDPH guidelines will result in immediate removal.

* Event passes will be distributed by team coaches to players at each playing level (7th, 8th, JV and Varsity.)

   * Depending on team roster size at each playing level, 1-2 tickets will be distributed for use by each family. 

   * No extra tickets will be available. 

* There will be no visiting spectators allowed. 

* Spectators will not be allowed into the game without the proper ticket. 

   * Spectators should not expect entry until 15 minutes prior to scheduled start times, or when doors are open for entry.
