Versailles offering student passes

VERSAILLES — The Versailles High School athletic department will be offering an all-season sports pass to students for $25 during the 2017-18 school year.

By decreasing prices for students, the school hopes students and families will be able to attend more events. It is a pilot program for this school year and will be reevaluated at the end of the next school year.

The passes will be good for all home high school and junior high sporting events, including football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling and track.

The all-season passes will go on sale on July 31. They will be available for purchase at the preseason parent meeting on that date.

More information regarding athletic tickets and passes will be announced later this summer.

Kindergarten and younger are admitted free at all home Versailles sporting events.
