Vermilion Parish Adopting New Safety Rules For Attending High School Games
Vermilion Parish School Board officials are tightening security measures when attending sports events within the parish.
According to Vermilion Parish Schools Superintendent Tommy Byler, these measures have been in the works for a while. Still, with recent gun violence near one of the schools, new security measures will be first priority.
The goal is to keep students, athletes, and parents safe while watching Friday Night Football, and other sporting events.
New rules for entering into a game include:
- Once students enter the game, they will not be allowed to leave.
- Clear backpacks are required if you are bringing one into the game.
- Everyone will be required to pass through a metal detector before entering a game.
Other rules will be implemented if needed. The goal is to have these rules for all 5 of the Vermilion Parish Public Schools.
