The track & Field season is quickly approaching. What can you do to prepare for the season...
1. A 2015-2016 sports physical must be completed by your parents and doctor and turned in to our Athletic Director, Mrs. Jones. If you have already turned one in for volleyball, basketball or wrestling--you don't need another.
2. A 2015-2016 Head Injury and Concussion form must be filled out and signed by you and your parent and turned in to our Athletic Director, Mrs Jones
*Both forms can be found on the School Loop Athletics page or on the EGUSD website
3. Keep working hard in your classes. A minimum GPA of a 2.0 for Term 3 must be attained (no F's). Also, your behavior must be satisfactory or better and not be on the No Activities List.
First day of practice will be Monday, March 28.
We will have an informational meeting the week of March 14
Please see Mrs. Jones if you have any questions
