Knights Athletic Pass – As we finalize our process for spectators, we are implementing a “Knights Athletic Pass.” All CCS families are invited to come to sporting events free of charge. We ask that you show the attached “Knights Athletic Pass” to the Gate Attendants, so they know that you are a CCS community member (feel free to take a screenshot).
