9/16/20 - Howell Public Schools is excited that our student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete in fall sports this year. To help ensure the safety of our student-athletes and spectators, the district will continue to follow all guidance from the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) and all executive orders issued by the Governor relating to athletic events. In doing this, athletic events will look very different this year.

The most noticeable change this fall will be in the area of spectators. Spectators at all athletic events will be limited to two spectators per participant. Unfortunately, to remain in compliance with the MHSAA guidance and the Governor's executive orders, there will be no public or student admission to athletic events, outside of the two spectators per participant. Additionally, for events in Howell High School's Memorial Stadium, there will be no parking or spectators allowed on the grass hill surrounding the stadium. This will enable us to remain in compliance with spectator limits. For events where there are two or more games (Freshman and JV Football), the stands will be cleared between games.

Additional health and safety protocols that will be implemented this year to keep all fans and student-athletes safe include:

  • All fans will be required to wear a face-covering at all times while attending an event
  • Fans who are feeling ill should not attend games
  • Proper social distancing will be expected at all times
  • Concessions will not be sold
  • We will allow bottled water, Gatorade, or pop inside the stadium

All events in Howell High School's Memorial Stadium and in the Howell High School Field House will be live streamed in partnership with the MHSAA. Fans may go to mhsaa.tv and create a login account. Search for Howell High School in the BROWSE line and then select the events you would like to view. There is a subscription fee to use this service. We are working to purchase a camera system to allow the live streaming of events held at Parker Middle School. However, due to the demand for these systems, this will take time.

Thank you in advance for your support of these new safety protocols.
