Iredell-Statesville Schools curbing violence with earlier games | #schoolsaftey

STATESVILLE, N.C. — Another school district is ramping up the rules at football games for everyone’s safety. 

After multiple arrests and threats of mass violence at a Statesville High School versus West Iredell High School game last Friday, the game was evacuated early.

The teams played on Monday this week without fans in the stands.

Starting Thursday, Oct. 12, Iredell-Statesville school football games will have earlier start times: junior varsity kicking off at 6 p.m. and varsity at 6:30 p.m.

Stadium parking will be restricted to game staff only. 

Anyone who needs handicapped parking will be directed to a designated area on each campus.

The district will also continue to screen everyone attending games, limit personal items allowed inside the stadium and require adult chaperones for children.
