LCMCISD Releases New Home Football Game Ticket Plan

in Events/Schools/Sports

Little Cypress Mauriceville has released a new home football game ticket plan.

The highlights of the plan are below.

All season tickets will be suspended for the 2020 season. Season tickets will be reinstated for the 2021 season with the same seating chart from the 2019 season with season ticket holders given the option to renew the same seats they had in 2019. There were 450 season tickets issued for the 2019 season.

  • Battlin’ Bear Stadium will be 100% general admission and be marked according to UIL and Orange County guidelines. Seating will be on every other row and spectators will be responsible
    for social distancing themselves from other groups. Families should not sit in groups larger than ten.
  • The LCM Honey Bears and Battlin’ Bear Band will be moved to seating on the track’s north end zone to free up more seating for spectators and allow for more spacing within their groups.
  • Bands and drill teams from visiting schools will not travel to Battlin’ Bear Stadium for the district games for the 2020 season.
  • No standing room only tickets will be sold.
  • There will be no pass gate for JH/MS /9/JV football players and cheerleaders to enter. All subvarsities must have a ticket to enter the game. This is necessary for capacity limitations.

The full plan can be viewed here. For more information or questions, please call 409-886-5821.

Orangefield High School Football Games to Be Televised

Orangefield High School Football Games to Be Televised

In an effort to increase the accessibility of high school football games and encourage social distancing across Texas, the UIL will allow live telecasts of regular season football games on Friday nights during the 2020-2021 school year.

Orangefield ISD is partnering with Texan Live to have all of their home games streamed for their fans’ convenience. Texan Live will be working with a number of schools in the area, so there may be a chance that they will cover some of our away games as well.

There is a monthly subscription that goes along with the service. The monthly fee is roughly $10. If you subscribe for three months it will equal the cost of what season tickets would have cost during a normal season.

Back to School Orange County Creates New Version of Giveaway Program

Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, Back to School Orange County made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person event of Back to School Orange County slated for Saturday, August 1st. Back to School Orange County determined they needed to prioritize the health and safety of their community partners, volunteers, and everyone who helps coordinate and work the event. More importantly, the Board of B2SOC could not determine a safe way to distribute school supplies and services to the children and families under the current social distancing guidelines.

To continue to meet the need in the area, Back to School Orange County Executive Committee decided to proceed with a different plan this year. They will collect and deliver supplies to each of the schools in all 5 districts in Orange County and have them ready to deliver to classrooms. They hope to partner with local churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals to make this happen.

Back to School Orange County will be purchasing school supplies for all Orange County district schools. These supplies will be purchased from and delivered by Orange Stationer. Our students and teachers will safely receive the necessary supplies to begin school.

You can donate by going to, by going to their website or by check. Checks need to be mailed and made out to Orange Christian Services with Back to School Orange County in the memo.

LCMCISD Changes School Start Date

Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD Adopts a New Tax Rate

Stacy Brister, Superintendent of LCMCISD, released the following statement on Jul 27:

As we continue to work through the many changes of COVID-19 it was determined tonight in a Special Board meeting of the LCM Board of Trustees to return to the originally adopted calendar, with school starting August 17th, for the 2020-2021 school year.

As beneficial as it is to move the start date for some, it also creates major issues for others. I know and fully understand parents must return to work and family plans were changed when we initially changed the calendar. At this time, we feel changing the start date is what is best for kids and their education. A delay allows time to get additional PPE materials installed in District facilities, it gives the teachers time to prepare to teach on multiple platforms, and it gives everyone time to adjust to new requirements and expectations before students arrive.

Please know when we first changed the calendar to an earlier start date there was not a virtual option. We were cautioned by the Commissioner of Education to build in extra days to accommodate the need to close school for the virus. Now that the virtual option is possible, we should not need to “close” as we did when this option didn’t exist. If we’re required to secure a classroom we will switch to virtual instruction for the day or two the classroom isn’t physically available to access.

Prepare to meet the challenge of CHANGE as we face this new year! Each week we are met with new requirements from Governor Abbott, TEA, CDC, UIL, and local authorities. We’ll do our very best to keep you informed, but know that continuous change will be part of the 2020-2021 school year. I’m confident we can make this school year a great one for our students!

Please watch for notifications through School Messenger, Facebook, and the District and campus webpages. We appreciate your flexibility as we try our best to do what is safest and best educationally for your children. Details of campus-specific meetings and activities will be sent to you from your campus administration.

We look forward to seeing your children and having a great school year.
