KLINGER WINTER SPORTS UPDATE
Hello Klinger families,
Please read the following information in preparation for our Winter sports season.
The Winter sports season has been put on hold for now. We will keep you posted of any and all updates.
Winter Sports began on Thursday, November 5. Winter sports include:
Girls Basketball: November 5 - December 21.
Boys Basketball: Tentative start date of January 4.
Wrestling is canceled for the 2020 Winter season.
Cheerleading (Continuation from the Fall season)
Prior to attending the first tryout, practice, or game, all students need the following:
Physical: If you played in the Fall, you don't need to get a new one. If you did not play in the Fall, even if you had the physical done in September or October, you need the new one completed. PIAA Physical
If you have already completed these forms for Fall sports, you do not need to complete them again.
Practices will run from 3:00-4:15 for all sports.
Virtual (and hybrid students on virtual days) should arrive at school between 2:50-3:00. There will be no busing for these students.
Students must wear a mask until stepping onto the gym floor.
Students must wear a mask after practice/games before returning to the bus/cars after practice/games.
Coaches will be spraying equipment after use.
Students must bring their own water bottles; sharing will not be permitted. Bring more water than you think you need!
Students with any symptoms (listed at the bottom of this document) may not attend. If you or your child check ANY of the symptoms listed on the health checks below, he/she may not participate. If a student has symptoms at the field, he/she will be separated from the other students, and a parent/guardian will be contacted for pick-up.
Each practice or game day, students or their parents MUST complete the daily health check form by 1:00 p.m. IF THE FORM IS NOT COMPLETED, THE STUDENT MAY NOT PARTICIPATE. (Please do not fill out this form today).
Upon arrival to Klinger (or away games), all student-athletes will be asked if they have any symptoms if they have completed their daily health check form and will have their temperature checked.
Symptoms that will exclude students:
Fever(100.4 or higher) or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
The school board will be voting on the allowance of spectators at Winter sports on 11/24/2020.
Once rosters are complete, coaches will provide information regarding practices as well as how to access Canvas and the “Remind App.” These will be the primary methods of communication.
Cancellations of games and practices will also be shared via Canvas and the “Remind App.”
As an added note: Many school districts around the state are not offering sports, especially at the middle school level. While some of these guidelines may seem too restrictive or overly-cautious, this is what we must do if we want our children to play. If guidelines are not followed, ie. masks, health checks, staying home when sick, and limited spectators, the athletic season will be canceled. We appreciate your support and cooperation. Our goal is to provide our students with activities to enhance their school experience, but we will only do so if this can occur safely and within the parameters, we have established.
Thank you for your support,
Mr. Hayes, Mr. Ford, and Mr. Jones

The Great American Smokeout is quickly approaching!
These days, cigarette smoking in teens is declining. However, there is a new hazard that our students may be introduced to. Vaping, Juuling, and other forms of E-cigarettes are on the rise. They boast flavor, fun and have many flashy devices that appeal to younger users. These devices can be used to inhale nicotine, as well as other dangerous substances. The scary part? Many of the devices look like ordinary things such as Sharpie markers, USB drives, even fun keychains!

Please make sure students charge their Chromebooks when they get to 15%. Please do not wait until they get down to zero.
If they need a replacement charger, they can buy them from our tech department or go on Amazon.
Chromebook tip: Charge the Chromebook before your student goes to bed. A full battery will last your student all day.
The following are general guidelines to care for your HP Chromebook.
Charging (This is the MOST Important!)
The Chromebook’s display is a sensitive component. If you drop your Chromebook,
slam the lid shut, and/or expose it to excessive pressure or weight, it may crack. Make sure
you don't have anything between the screen and keyboard as you close the case.
Don't place items on top of your Chromebook as the weight can cause damage to the
screen. Always keep magnetic devices away from your Chromebook.
Always close the Chromebook lid prior to moving it.
