Spectator Attendance at West Fargo Public Schools' Events

West Fargo, ND – (October 15, 2020) – At his press briefing yesterday afternoon, Governor Burgum officially changed Cass County’s risk level from yellow to orange. This risk level adjustment requires changes to be made to allowable gathering sizes, including those at WFPS indoor and outdoor venues. The below changes will be effective starting at 5:00PM on Friday, October 16. 


All ticketed and non-ticketed events occurring at both WFPS indoor and outdoor venues are hereby restricted to athletes, coaches, and event staff only. This change is necessary in order for us to continue providing co-curricular activities in a safe environment for our students and coaches.


When possible, home athletic contests will be livestreamed through WFPS YouTube channels or third-party vendors. Links to those contests will be found on Sheyenne High School's Mustang Live Stream, Horace High School's Hawk Live Stream, West Fargo High School Packer Live Stream, Cheney Middle School's Packer Live Stream, Heritage Middle School's Hawk Live Stream, and Liberty Middle School's Mustang Live Stream.  

We understand how disappointing this is for our families and fans, but it is the best decision in support of the health of our coaches, administrators, fans, and most importantly, our student-athletes. We will continue to monitor the directives and guidelines of the North Dakota Department of Health, Fargo-Cass Public Health, and the North Dakota High School Activities Association, and will provide more information as it becomes available.
