In full transparency, the following was posted on the Natick School Resources social media account today.
NATICK – We are not allowing any balls, drinks, or bags to enter Memorial Field. All pocketbooks and handbags are subject to search at the discretion of the Natick Staff and Natick PD.
No Natick High student will be allowed to bring their backpack into the game for any reason.
Body Painting is not allowed.
Parents of Middle School and Elementary School students are expected to attend the games with their children and sit with them during the games.
Students should not be running around the facility unattended.
All spectators should be in attendance to watch and enjoy the game.
Finally, students should not be waiting for rides at the end of the game. We are going to turn out the lights and send the Natick Police and Natick Staff home from Memorial Field approximately 20 minutes after the conclusion of the game.
We understand the unifying effect that Athletics has on our community here in Natick.
For the safety of the players and fans and to ensure a fantastic experience for all, we want to encourage you to root for the Redhawks with class and poise and feel that the guidelines above are necessary to achieve that goal.
