The following message was sent to WGSD families and staff:
Dear WGSD Community,
This morning, we were made aware of a direct threat in social media toward someone involved in tonight’s football game, who is not a WGSD student, parent, staff member or community member. The police are actively investigating the situation.
Out of an abundance of caution, spectators of tonight’s football game will be limited to two parents and/or family members of participants, including football players, band members, cheerleaders and members of the dance team. An email with additional ticket information from the Activities/Athletic Office will soon be sent to the person listed as the primary parent/guardian in our student information system.
Due to the limit on spectators, season ticket passes will not be accepted for entry into tonight’s game.
Additional safety precautions for tonight’s game include an increased police presence and only one entrance point for spectators.
While attending WGHS football games is a favorite activity for many within our community, I appreciate your understanding and support for the adjustments we needed to make - all to keep the students, staff and families of the WGHS and Ritenour HS communities safe.
