Skyridge Admin Team
It is time for Skyridge track participants to signup! Track practices begin on Monday, March 31 at 3 PM. All paperwork is due by Wednesday, March 26, 2014. Track is open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Students who have not participated in a sport yet this year will need to submit a completed Athletic and Medical Emergency Authorization Form; current physical (within the last 18 months); and Concussion Form. Participants are also required to have an ASB card ($25) and paid participation fee ($30). All paperwork and fees must be received in the main office prior to participating. The forms can be printed from this website (under the athletics tab above) or picked up from the main office. Students who have already participated in any other sport this year do not need to turn in a new set of forms. They do need to come to the main office between 9 AM – 1 PM to talk with Mrs. Button and pay their $30 participation fee.
With Friday, February 14, being a school attendance day and also Valentine’s Day, please note that balloons and flowers are NOT permitted in classrooms nor on buses. Some students and staff may have allergic reactions which can be life threatening. DO NOT bring any of these items to school for delivery to students. Thank you for supporting us in providing a safe environment for everyone!
Just a reminder that Wednesday and Thursday are late start days this week. Students should arrive at bus stops two hours and 15 minutes later than their regularly scheduled time. All classes begin at 10:15 AM.
