Columbia Heights Public Schools Launches Activities Live Stream

Columbia Heights Public Schools (CHPS) has launched a live stream option for families and community members to watch activities & athletics events. CHPS fans can now choose to attend events in person with revised spectator rules or watch via live stream.

“We are excited to offer the Heights community opportunities to view our games/matches!” said Activities Manager Jake Henderson. “We continue to follow Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidance for events to ensure all spectators and participants are safe.”

Spectator policies were recently updated and are in accordance with the directives from the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL), Twin Cities Football District, Tri-Metro Conference, and MDH:

Outdoor Events

  • Only home fans allowed.
  • All spectators must remain masked the entire event and socially distanced (may sit with family groups.)
  • Anyone who feels sick or has a 100-degree temperature or above should not attend.
  • Spectators may not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to game and must leave immediately following the game and wait for student athletes in vehicle.
  • Limited amount of tickets available, must be purchased online pre-sale only. Limited amount of staff, senior and booster passes available – first come, first serve.
  • Contact tracing of all spectators will be done.

Indoor Events

  • Two (2) spectators per participant.
  • Only home fans allowed. Ticket information will be made available to athletes and families.
  • Spectators may not arrive more than 10 minutes early and will only be allowed to stay for their participant’s match (example: JV parents may not stay for varsity match).
  • All spectators must remain masked the entire event and socially distanced (may sit with family groups).
  • Anyone who feels sick or has a 100-degree temperature or above should not attend.
  • Contact tracing of all spectators will be done.

“Even with the guidelines for spectators expanded, live streaming will allow for more people to engage with CHPS activities & athletics,” said Communications Coordinator Lauryn Grimes. “Now, friends and extended family members of athletes or those who cannot attend due to health or safety concerns can still watch games live and root for the Hylanders from home.”
