Polk County Public schools news release graphic.

This is a reminder that Polk County Public Schools does not permit spectators to wear costumes during athletic events, including high school football games.

Although Halloween is approaching, costumes and props of any kind are still not permitted at any school district athletic events. This is Polk County Public Schools’ normal practice throughout the year.

Under safety protocols for COVID-19, spectators must wear a mask or face covering that covers both the nose and mouth and fits snugly against the sides of a person’s face with little or no gaps.

However, please be advised that Halloween or costume masks are not permitted and will not be allowed as a substitute for a face covering to help protect students, staff and families against the spread of COVID-19.
