TMP-M will follow KSHSAA policy on spectator attendance
TMP-M is allowing two parents/guardians per participant for all athletic events through January 28th, 2021. All spectators will need to social distance and properly wear masks at all times while in attendance.
Parents/Guardians of active participants may enter the facility for their child/children's activity. A pass gate will be at each MCL school and TMP-M. Non-league host schools may have different policies. The school will do its best to communicate non-league host policies as soon as possible.
Parents/Guardians should be prepared to state their name and provide ID in order to gain admittance. Please read the KSHSAA interpretations below carefully. TMP-Marian will be strictly following these.
For example, interpretation #5 states that parents/guardians may be present for their child's JV game but that does not mean they can stay for a Varsity game where their child is not suited up.
TMP-M will have concessions available. Having food or drink is not an excuse to remove a mask indefinitely. Spectators are expected to properly wear the mask between drinks and bites.

KSHSAA Clarification and Interpretation for Spectators:
Effective Dec. 10 through Jan. 28, 2021, interscholastic activities will allow for attendance of up to two parents/guardians per participant(s) family as allowed by local board of education or health department restrictions.
1. Participants include: Players, Coaches, Student Managers, Cheer squads/coaches, Dance teams/coaches, Pep bands/directors, and Student Journalists
2. Coaches may have parents/guardians or spouse/significant other.
3. Children of coaches and administrators do not meet the definition approved by the Board of Directors (BOD).
4. School Advisory Council members do not meet the criteria established by the BOD unless their child is an active participant.
5. Parents/guardians are there to support their child while in competition; there is no reason for them to attend “all” games in the facility on a given day.
6. Teams playing in that facility as part of a multi-game event may remain in the gym as long as they are socially distant.
7. All spectators must be masked the entire time in facility, even if they are socially distanced.
8. No “substitutes” for parent/guardian if they are unable to attend contest.
9. Event staff are not afforded parent/guardian or spouse attendance.
10. The impacted interscholastic activities include basketball, debate, forensics/speech, scholars bowl, and wrestling.
Please remember, the reason restricted attendance is necessary is to minimize exposure opportunities and support school and community health (both CDC and KDHE recommend no mass gatherings).
