Update About FMHS Football Game 8/28/2020

The Fort Madison Community School District has reviewed current positivity rates for Lee, Des Moines and Henry counties which make up the FMCSD.  Both Lee and Des Moines counties have escalated to over a 15% positivity rate which places the counties in the top tier of community transmission in the state.

In collaboration with the Lee County Health Department and the Iowa Department of Public Health, large community gatherings are recommended to be restricted or cancelled. We must continue to keep the health and safety of our FMCSD community a priority and as a result will be issuing limited tickets for Friday evening’s home football game.

Two vouchers will be distributed to each football player, cheerleader and marching band member who may distribute them to their respective guests.  

Masks will be required for those in attendance and social distancing is expected.  

To be eligible to enter the stadium you must bring your voucher to the gate and purchase an admission ticket. Anyone who does not have a voucher will not be admitted. 

Please know that these decisions are not easy and we understand feelings of frustration. We are grateful our students are getting this opportunity but it must happen under conditions that minimize risk to athletes and fans. We appreciate your continued support of our student athletes. We understand that everyone’s passion and support stems from our student athletes participating in extracurricular activities.

As a reminder, as was the case last year, FMHS football games will be live streamed on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Qp_UMiy9J-Q and covered by Radio Keokuk https://streamdb8web.securenetsystems.net/cirruscontent/WCEZFM 1310 AM station KOKX so all community members can watch or listen to the game live.

FMHS senior night for Fall activities and athletics will be rescheduled for a future home game.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue as a district to navigate reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic.
