Parking for home athletic events from the desk of Jim Weagley, Athletics Director

Octorara High School will begin a 3-year construction project starting in November. This will affect parking and access to the buildings for athletic events. All team buses and spectator vehicles must enter Drveway #3 and park in the student parking lot (to the left of the building as you face the high school). Teams and coaches will enter the building on the side of the high school by the locker rooms. This area will be marked by a "Team Entrance" sign on the building. Spectators will enter from the side of the building through the cafeteria and into the gym. This will be marked by a "Spectator Entrance" sign on the building. Spectators and teams will exit the building via the same routes. For middle school events spectators should use driveway #1 and enter through the front doors of the middle school and go to gym. The rear parking lots are closed to traffic. Thank you for your cooperation.
