ELYSIAN FIELDS — The Elysian Fields ISD has received a letter from the UIL concerning spectators and visitors at the Daingerfield-Elysian Fields football game on Sept. 18, according to Superintendent Maynard Chapman..

EFISD has been turned in for violating Gov. Abbott’s executive order of wearing a mask and also not practicing social distancing. It was mentioned that repeated announcements were made about wearing a face mask and social distancing and that adjustments still were not made.

Due to these allegations, the EFISD had to provide the UIL and the state District Executive Committee its district’s Athletic Risk Mitigation Plan.

If there are any further allegations reported to the UIL, EFISD faces two consequences: (1) No spectators and visitors will be allowed to attend UIL events; and (2) students will lose out on the opportunity to participate in all UIL events and activities.

The Yellow Jackets are scheduled to play Queen City in the District 11-3A Division II opener Friday night at home.

Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
