Fairfield Schools Close Early Friday for Championship Game

On Friday, Nov. 30 the Fairfield Central Griffins will travel to Benedict College to take on Dillon High School for the 2A state title. Because the game is at 5:30, the school district will have a dismissal time of 1 p.m. for all district schools. Because of bus routes, Fairfield Elementary and Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science will dismiss at 12:30. An early dismissal will minimize the likelihood that we will have students and supporters rushing to arrive at the stadium by the 5:30 kickoff. We want to ensure that we do all that we can to assist students and fans with safely traveling to and from the game venue.

The State 2A Division 1 Football Championship will be played Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Charlie Johnson Football Stadium, on Two Notch Road at Reed Street in Columbia. Tickets will be sold at Fairfield Central High School during business hours.

Admission price is $10. Children 5 & under free. Parking $10.
