FOOTBALL BLEACHERS AT ATL
A message from ATL administration:
Community, Parents, and Students: The district informed us today our home side bleachers are closed for the remainder of the season due to a safety concern. The good news: We are able to use our ATL home field for the two home games remaining this season, but seating will be limited. We are excited that Senior Night is tomorrow evening, Oct. 1, and our last scheduled home game is Homecoming on Oct. 22! We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Tickets for tomorrow evening's game will go on sale at 5:30 pm. Thank You! Go Eagles!
