Any student interested in participating must have a physical completed by the doctor and then approved by the school doctor to be able to participate. Form are available on the school’s website under the “Sports and Clubs” tab.

Please feel free to contact the nurse with any questions in regards to these forms.

**All paperwork may be submitted as early as February 1, 2019 but will only be accepted until Friday, February 22, 2019. No paperwork will be accepted after this date for participation in Spring Track 2019.

This year the Track Program is open to all students grades 5th through 8th and who have maintained all academic requirements for their classes. Practice will take place Monday through Thursday until 4:15 p.m. Please be sure to pick your child up promptly after practice.

You do not need to be a great runner to come out for the team. We all practice together, but when we compete in meets against other schools, you are divided into boys and girls for each event. Fifth and sixth graders run together and seventh and eighth graders run together. Track events include 100m, 200m, 800m, 1600 (one mile) run, relay, long jump, and shot put.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at school. Attached is a schedule for the season. Please note, the schedule is subject to change. Please sign up for my Track Remind for updates as needed. Thank you and I look forward to a great season!
