In the past few years we have seen more middle and elementary school students left unsupervised by their parents at high school athletic games and, consequently, more incidents of misconduct and other inappropriate behaviors by these students. This has particularly become a problem at night-time football games, where we have our largest number people attending including the largest gathering of 8th grade and younger students.

We seem to have more parents dropping their children off at the high school and then picking them up after the game. This is not safe. It is particularly unsafe at night-time football games, where a number of kids congregate in large groups within the spectator areas and on the adjoining unlighted sports fields to socialize and unfortunately also to become involved in misconduct.

While we have numerous school administration and security on hand, the size of the area and number of spectators diminish our ability to safely supervise unattended youngsters.

Along with the privilege of participating in an athletic contest, either as a spectator or player, comes the responsibility to exhibit exemplary conduct, spirit and sportsmanship. Enfield High School has been recognized in the past for its outstanding conduct and the example it portrays for others on and off the playing field.

We are being proactive in adjusting our attendance practice to ensure the safest environment possible for all who attend.

ATTENDANCE POLICY   Children 8th grade and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

  • For this policy, adult is defined as a parent or grandparent of the child.
  • We will allow one additional non-related child to attend with the above adult upon initial entry only. Children will not be allowed to show up and have someone come from the crowd to vouch for their entry.
  • Children who arrive at the door or gate to a contest without an adult will be denied entrance and can remain at gate area until a ride comes to bring them home.
  • This policy will be in effect for all evening varsity football games and evening games for boys’ and girls’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ volleyball and wrestling.
  • High school siblings WILL NOT be allowed to escort their younger siblings to games without being accompanied by an adult.


We thank you for your assistance in creating an inviting and safe environment and are willing to work together with us to actively model and teach children appropriate behavior and expectations.
