Sarasota County Schools Reminds the Public of What to Bring to School-Related Athletic Events

SARASOTA COUNTY, August 22, 2019 – Just in time for high school football and volleyball games, Sarasota County Schools would like to remind parents and the general public of what is permissible to bring to indoor and outdoor sporting events.

The school district created a graphic to easily convey what type of bags are allowed at sporting events, a list of prohibited items and conduct tips for spectators, to name a few.

“It’s important for our fans to know what to expect when they attend school-based athletic events,” noted James Slaton, athletic director for Sarasota County Schools. “Knowing what to bring to athletic events and what is prohibited will ensure all attendees have an enjoyable experience. We hope parents, students and families will review the list of approved items for both indoor and outdoor sports before they cheer for their favorite team.”
