They will also require children of school age or younger to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Anyone who engages in violence or disruptive behavior will be expelled from the stadium and could be banned from all future matches. . Aptos High School has discussed these protocols with the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Department as well as the PVUSD administration.
