- If students have additional bags, shoes, equipment, etc. that they are bringing for practice and do not want to carry throughout the day, they can store them in the conference room by the office. Students can bring their equipment at the beginning of the day and pick it up at the end of the day before practice.

- Running: Sprints (100 m, 200m, 400m), long distance (800m, 1600m)

Academic Eligibility: Before students can participate in middle school athletics, they must meet academic requirements. To be academically eligible, students must earn a passing grade in all subjects. Grade checks are completed weekly by school personnel. Students who are not eligible one week may be eligible the next, depending on classroom performance. Non-eligible students are notified and may participate in practices but not competitions. Students who are absent or are serving an Out of School suspension are not eligible to participate in practices or competitions that are scheduled on those days. Student absences for a documented legal, medical, dental, or school-related activity are exempt. Student academic eligibility is subject to review based on IDEA and Section 504 of the ADA.
Students who receive Major or multiple Minor Office Discipline Referrals will not be eligible to participate in meets occurring during the week of the offense(s). Any student serving a suspension is also suspended from all school activities on that day or days.
