District Headlines

    Dear Ironton “Fighting Tiger” Fans: (11/25/2020)

    The Governor’s Office and the Ohio High School Athletic Association have issued guidance regarding spectators attending indoor winter sporting events.  At this time Ironton City Schools will limit spectator attendance, for home events, to the parents (plus one guest) of student athletes participating in boys basketball, girls basketball, and wrestling.  Spectator limitations for bowling and swimming contests will be determined by the event site host.  We will continue to work with the OHSAA and member schools of the Ohio Valley Conference in order to determine best practices moving forward.
