Expectations for athletic events at NISD Stadium:

  • Football season is underway at NISD Stadium! We love to see our crowds at or near capacity for our home matchups, and the district plans accordingly to ensure a fun environment for all attendees!
    Stadium gates open at 5:30 p.m., so please plan to beat the traffic. Kickoff takes place as close to 7 p.m. as possible, given any scheduled pre-game events or announcements. Spectators are not allowed to switch between home and visitors’ sides of the facility during the game. As we prepare for a large attendance at our home matchups, however, we also need your help for a great game atmosphere!
    Students should come to games with the intent to watch from the crowd, either with their friends or their immediate family. As with all school events, each student should bring their campus ID badge. For parents and guardians, please coordinate with your student for travel to and from the game. Additionally, if you are not attending the game with your child, be available by phone in case of emergency.
    We look forward to cheering on our football teams under the lights this season! 


  • Expectations for athletic events at NISD Stadium: 
    • Parents and guardians are expected to pick up students promptly at the end of all NISD events. Any student remaining beyond 30 minutes after the end of the event/game may be suspended from attending future events/games.
    • Parents and guardians are asked to accompany their students to NISD events or be available by phone if needed.
    • Students are asked to bring their student ID to all events 
    • Students must remain in their seats or “move with purpose” to/from concessions/restroom area.
    • Students must sit either in the designated student section or with their immediate family.
