Tickets may be purchased from now until Thursday, Nov. 19, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the central administration office and at the RFHS front office. The Aransas County Independent School District will release school early Friday to allow students and families to attend the game. Superintendent Joseph Patek explained the early release Friday is necessary in order for the ACISD transportation department to have buses and drivers available to transport students and staff to Katy in a timely manner. Patek said, “Using our buses instead of leasing charter buses will save the district thousands of dollars. Also, the early release will allow students, school staff, and their families more time to travel to Katy for the game. We will be traveling to a busy city at a busy time of the day. It’s best if we utilize our own buses and drivers, and we feel helping everyone get an earlier start will contribute to the safety and comfort of the trip.”
