New rules set for Cubs fans
Monett lists guidelines for fan attendance this season
The Monett school district released new guidelines for fans wishing to attend its fall sports events, whether in the gym or outside.
Right now, we will not limit the number of fans we allow into our facilities, said Daryl Bradley, athletic director. However, that can change at any moment. We are working close with health officials, and we will ultimately do what is in the best interests of our student athletes and their safety.
