New Athletic Guidelines
After consultation with local health officials and in an effort to find a compromise to allow spectators at sporting events and audiences at fine arts performances, the following revised guidelines regarding spectators at extracurricular and co-curricular activities will be in place effective Tuesday, December 1, 2020:
- No more than two (2) individuals per any student participating in the co-curricular or extracurricular activity will be allowed to watch the event in person.
- Strict social distancing will be observed and enforced.
- Strict guidelines will be enforced requiring masks to be worn at all times during indoor events. At outdoor events, masks must be worn when entering the event, and the masks may be removed when seated.
Individuals not complying with these guidelines will be required to leave the event.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue our efforts to keep our students, staff, and community safe.

Let's "meet" to discuss your plans! All grade levels!
Do you need help figuring out your next step? Do you have questions about the college application process? Are you wondering where you stand for your GPA and test scores for admission? Would you like to discuss trades, careers, or military service? Are you interested in seeing what you can do now to help yourself later?

When to Wear a Cloth Face Covering (Mask)
· The school district requires that all students, visitors, and employees wear a mask or other face covering while on school property and/or engaged in school activities, including outdoors when unable to maintain a distance.
· If you are a car rider, you should apply your face covering when you arrive at school before exiting your car in the parking lot.
· If you are a bus rider you should apply your face covering when you arrive at the bus stop. Face masks will be required on school buses.
When can I remove my Cloth Face Covering (Mask)
· You can remove your face covering when you are outdoors and able to maintain at least a safe distance from others, and at end of the day after you have exited the building.
· You can remove your face covering during meal and snack times. To the extent possible, maintain a 6 ft distance from others when you have your mask off.
· If occupying an office space by yourself, you can also safely remove your mask but should be ready to reapply as soon as others approach you.
Please remind your students to wear a face mask and keep their mouth and nose covered. This is for the protection of your student, other students, and staff members. Our number one goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Wildcat masks can be ordered through your fees in your myStudent account. Keep an eye out for our school spirit store opening soon!
