    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - As the high school football season kicks off Friday, Orange and Seminole County school officials want to remind fans of the rules.

    Items and behavior that will not be allowed at Orange County school games:

    • Backpacks or large bags
    • Drugs, alcohol, smoking/vaping
    • Weapons
    • Outside food or drink
    • Admission after the 3rd quarter
    • Loitering on campus after the event
    • Exit & re-entry

    School officials posted the rules to Facebook to remind everyone with the following Facebook post:

    Officials also said once someone leaves the stadium, they will not be permitted back into the premises.

    "People can go out to their cars, they can get things out of their cars and bring them back in," said Scott Howat of Orange County Public Schools.

    Howat said OCPS has not had any issues during after school games.

    Seminole County schools have similar rules in place for their games, as well as a rule outlawing artificial noisemakers.
