The DeKalb County School District will allow spectators for Football games starting the weekend of October 15 – October 17, 2020.
The coaches across the county have been moving as many of their games to away games allowing the parents to attend their child’s sporting events. The DeKalb Schools shift on the no spectators stance is just in time for the Chamblee Charter HS vs Dunwoody HS football game this Friday.
Mega schools are still getting the short end of the stick. Whether your school has 500 students or 2,500 students, each team will be allotted the same number of tickets per game. I believe the tickets for the CCHS v Dunwoody football game were sold out within hours of them going on sale.
Return to School Face to Face Billboards
A parent group advocating for a return to face to face learning has purchased several billboards around the county.
