Good Wednesday Morning,
This Friday Tiger Football will play in the second round of the Playoffs. We will be playing at Upper Arlington High School. The kickoff is at 7:00pm and the Central fans will be on the Visitor's side.
This is going to be another cold evening of football. Students are expected to layer appropriately. We had a freshman show up wearing a single t-shirt layer to stand outside in 20 degree weather last Friday for hours. This is dangerous and we must dress appropriately. The staff needs the help of parents and guardians to ensure that the students are dressed appropriately.
Many students had on hooded sweatshirts that were not white/purple/black. Because of the cold I allowed it to pass. This week I need everyone to make sure they layer in clothes that fit the uniform requirements. RED SWEATSHIRTS hanging out of uniforms will not suffice and I will ask the students to place their hoods back in their uniform every time.
Other items that do not pass uniform inspection are sport team beanie hats, unzipped uniform pants, ANY ITEM THAT IS NOT SCHOOL COLORS.
Students will be allowed to bring warm blankets for the stands only. Blankets must be folded and carried in by hand or in a small bag.

Due to this being a very easy trip without the semi trailer hauling ALL of our sound and pit equipment we will operating with a very small booster group. Just enough to help with attendance and keeping the peace on busses.
