Below is the link to the mandatory parent meeting for boys and girls cross country. Every runner will need to have an adult present for the meeting. Please leave your students name in the comments so that I can check off each runner as having a parent present. We will go over the practice schedule in the parent meeting. For now while we are on the current school system schedule we will not be practicing on Wednesdays but will practice every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday until 4pm.

All runners need to report to practice on Monday. Students who are in the building will report to the gym and runners who are on virtual days need to NOT report until 2:50pm. Virtual day runners need to report to the gym through the cafeteria door NOT through the front doors. Do not ring the bell at the front door of the building for entry. There will be a team member letting runners in through the side door. All practices starting Monday will end at 4:00pm and runners will need to have a ride promptly at 4pm.

Parents: there will be a mandatory parent zoom meeting on Monday 8/17/2020 at 5pm. I will post the zoom link on this page as an update as soon as I have set the meeting up. There must be an adult representative for every runner. There is lots of new information this year pertaining to distancing at meets and meet dates. Runners will bring home Remind info and a schedule on Monday from practice. 

Updated 8/10/2020 @ 11:30am

All information from each update below is vital information. New things added today:

Both A/B and at home students will be required to be at tryouts even if they are at home that day learning. At home and opposite day students will need to arrive at the school NO EARLIER than 2:50pm to avoid car rider traffic. No student athlete can be dropped off before 2:50 as this will disrupt traffic flow. Students should report to the gym after being dropped off. Students should arrive with a full water bottle and dressed appropriately for tryouts. 

Tryouts are for students only parents must wait in their vehicles and are not permitted to interact with students during tryouts, come inside the building, or to be on the tryout course or in the bleachers at the field.

Students who are in school each day need to report to the gym and have a seat in the bleachers on a red dot (rows 1, 4 or 7) on the locker room side of the gym. Students will wait for Coach Bacon to report to the gym following bus duty. Students must wear their mask while socially distanced in the bleachers waiting to go change. 

Girls will be sent into the locker room 2 students at a time to change and will remain socially distanced and in masks at all times while in the locker room.

Boys will be monitored by a male coach while in the locker room and will be taken in several at a time. Boys must maintain social distance and wear masks at all times while in the locker room.

All students will be assigned a number the first day of tryouts. When cuts are made students will be told what day to return to this page to look for their number. If students see their number they will report back and have made the 2020 cross country team. When numbers are posted there will be more information about the date and time for the mandatory parent zoom meeting. Practice schedule, fees, and uniform information will be given out during the parent meeting. 

Updated 8/9/2020:

Please read all below information. Times have been changed from the initial update to this page, they have been updated below. This will be my primary form of communication until cuts have been made and the team selected.

More information is coming in an update to this page on Monday 8/10/2020, this information will be posted after 11am. This information will be related to masks, water availability, and where students need to report after school to wait for tryouts to begin.

Updated: 8/6/2020: Please see changes highlighted

Cross Country tryouts will begin on 8/12 immediately after school, runners ONLY report to the gym and wait in the bleachers. This year there will likely be a tryout/cuts to accommodate for social distancing requirements at meets. I will be getting more information this week on these items. After school meeting location to prep for tryouts is subject to change. Please check back for more information prior to 8/12. I will update information as I receive it. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
