AD QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What happens if I am told I have to have parent transportation to my game? This means the school district was unable to schedule transportation for your trip. Since there isn't a bus, it is up to the parents to decide how you get to your event. Parents must organize and decide who is transporting athletes to the event. Coaches cannot be involved in this process.
If you have a question, email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask. We will share out answers here for everyone.
FRHS Activity Pass
If your FRHS student plans on attending 8 or more home athletic or crosstown games (including FB, Boys/Girls VB, Boys/Girls Bkbll, or WR) it is cheaper to purchase the $30 activities pass. The best part of this pass is the money stays at Fossil Ridge and is spent on student programs. Please consider purchasing the pass as a way to save money and ensure the revenue comes back to Fossil. Thanks for being a SaberCat!!!! Contact the athletic office with any questions.
