Reserving a Facility & Tailgating


Beginning May 2019 Lawrence High School began extensive renovations. Facility reservations by outside groups may be limited or suspended until further notice.

The use of an athletic facility, classroom, or room within the building requires advance approval of a facility reservation request by an LHS Administrator and district Facilities and Operations.

A facility use request form must be completed, signed, and submitted to the LHS main office for approval. If approved, it will be forwarded to Facilities and Operations for final approval. Fees may be assessed by LPS Facilities and Operations.

Reservation request forms are available in the Main Office and in Athletics



To insure a fan-friendly and safe tailgating environment, the following rules will be enforced by Lawrence High
School staff, event staff, and local law enforcement.
1. Alcohol, tobacco, and e-cigarette use is strictly prohibited on all district properties by the Lawrence Public Schools Board of Education Policy. Violators may be asked to leave the facilities.

2. Only designated areas may be used for tailgating. Organizations, Class Reunions, or large groups should
contact building administration for an assigned tailgate area. All others may tailgate in designated parking areas provided they comply with all other tailgate policies.

3. Tailgating in the parking lot may not impede the general flow of traffic or use a space intended for a
parked car. Overflow tailgaters will be directed by security or law enforcement officers to comply. Those not complying with the tailgating policy may be ticketed and or towed.
