Source: The Sun-Sentinel

Following the shooting that took place at Palm Beach Central High during a preseason game against Dwyer on Friday night, the Palm Beach County School District announced schedule changes and alterations to game day and stadium procedures on Sunday.

Week 1 games involving Central and Dwyer will now be played at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The Broncos play at Atlantic and the Panthers host Park Vista.

Beginning with this week’s games, only clear bags will be permitted into stadiums, with the only exception being diaper bags, which will be subject to search.

Palm Beach County schools will not allow entry into games after the second-half kickoff, and there will be no re-entry at any point during a game should an individual leave the stadium before the game is over.
