Don’t let your guard down. We are going through a very tough time. By following safety guidelines, we’ll get through this together. Here is some advice that was given to me years ago – “Always keep your head on a swivel.”

To the parents and fans, thank you for your continued support! We want to inform you that, at this time, spectators will not be allowed at on-campus athletic events, for example, events held at Kennedy HS Gym or Memorial HS gym. However, at least once per season, we will rotate all teams to play games at the Edgewood District Gym and Veterans Stadium. It’s these particular venues that do allow a reduced number of spectators to attend games because of extended space. As COVID-19 numbers decline and CDC, U.I.L., and EISD guidelines change, attendance numbers will increase. Thank you and please STAY SAFE!
