Athletic Spectator Protocols

Napa High School Student Athletes and Families,

After a successful first season of athletics, we are excited to launch season two athletic home competitions this week! In order to maintain a safe environment, we have updated indoor and outdoor spectator protocols by venue based on Napa County Public Health guidelines. Thank you in advance for adhering to these guidelines. We look forward to partnering with you in supporting our student athletes as they compete with victory and honor!
