Pre-Participation Athletic Forms
All students trying out for a spring sport must have current Pre-Participation Athletic Forms on file in the office.

During this particularly difficult flu season, we’re working hard to keep our school clean and safe for our students, faculty, and staff.
- We’re frequently wiping down surfaces with hospital-grade sanitizing cleaner.
- We’re asking parents to remember the 24-hour rule: Please do not send your child to school until they have been fever free without the use of medications for at least 24 hours. Also, students who have been sick with a stomach virus should be completely symptom free for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
- We’re encouraging students to wash their hands frequently. The CDC says that washing hands is one of the best ways to prevent germs from spreading.
Thank you for keeping sick children home so they can recover and come back to school after they are well!
