We would like to update you on the new TSSAA guidelines for the Van Buren Middle School and High School basketball games. Due to these new guidelines, the only people allowed to attend basketball games are those individuals whose name is listed on the pass gate list. To be placed on the pass gate list, you must be added by a Van Buren County basketball team member. No extra tickets will be sold at the gate. All Van Buren County Staff members must also be added to the list by a basketball team member. Please remember if you are attending the basketball game, you need to sit with your family members. We are hopeful these new guidelines will allow our student athletes to continue their basketball season. Thank you for your cooperation.
