Updated Spectator Guidelines

On Tuesday, December 8, the KSHSAA Board of Directors held a special meeting to address concerns made about the spectator guidelines that were approved during their previous meeting in November.  The guidelines were amended so that beginning December 10, two parent/guardian spectators per participant can be allowed to high school and middle school events.  Minutes from the meeting can be found here, while a recording of the meeting is available here.
