LCHS Charging K-12 Fans More?

A Berry Picker just received this email from Lake City High (note the boldface item): LCHS is  Pre-selling tickets for the FB game Friday night for the Post Falls Game in the office. ALL  K-8 students not accompanied by a parent will be charged $10.  Prices are as follows:  $5.00 for adults & high school students without ASB,   Grades 6-8 with ASB $2.00 – without  ASB $3.00 – grade K -6 $1.00 Seniors & pre-school free!  Lets go Cheer on the BOYS!! Go-T-Wolves!

Berry Picker: "Just got an email from LCHS on pre sale tickets for tonight's Lake City Post Falls. In looking at it I wondered if it would be a good topic for the HB gang. how much should students pay to go see a local football game?I especially like the "ALL K-8 students not accompanied by a parent will be charged $10." wonder why they are gouging that group.I've always felt funny having to pay to see high school games especially if my kid attends the school, but, I understand they need the cash just feels funny."

Question: Dunno if this is a misprint. If not, it seems odd to me, too, that Lake City High would charge unaccompanied K-8 twice as much as an adult to see a high school football game. Do you agree?
