Football Game in Statesboro - Early Release


Dear Parents and Guardians,


On Friday, August 19th, the Tift County High School Blue Devils travel to Statesboro, Georgia to participate in the Erk Russell Classic and to play their first game of this football season against South Effingham.  Kick-off time for the game is 5:00 PM. 
We anticipate that many of our students will want to attend this game to support our Blue Devils.  Due to the early game time and concern for our students’ safe travel to the game, we are allowing students who will be attending the game to leave school at

11:00 AM on August 19th provided they have done the following:


  •      Purchased a ticket to the game. Tickets can be purchased at school during lunch.  The cost of the ticket is $10.00.
  •      Signed the Student NI Roster at the time of ticket purchase.
  •      Returned the Permission Form below to the Attendance Office BEFORE August 19th. This Permission Form must be signed by the student’s parent or guardian, and the parent or guardian must provide a telephone number where he can be reached in the event that the school needs to speak with him. 


Students who purchase a ticket and return the Permission Form as requested will not be marked absent for 3rd and 4th blocks, but students are expected to complete all assignments missed.   Any student who checks out of school to attend the game without following these procedures will be marked as absent, and this absence will be unexcused.
