    Questions

     

    Dear Parents and/or Guardians:

    Wednesday, April 14th, we will have our first Track practice at Sentinel’s Stegner Field.  The student-athletes will travel to Sentinel as a group; some will run, some will walk.  If your child has a bike, and would like to ride it there, we will need to know in advance so that we can plan to have at least one coach on a bicycle to accompany anyone that rides.  All track athletes will have supervision going over, as we are traveling as a team.  We will take the following route: 39th to Paxson to McDonald.  We will cross Russell Street at the light and will go through Russell school playground to the bike/walk trails and take those the rest of the way to the high school track.  When I walked this route it took me 35 minutes, and I lived through the experience, so I think the kids will do just fine.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about your child practicing at Sentinel.  PICK YOUR CHILD UP FROM THE TRACK AT 3:30 on those days (April 14, 28, and May 12).  Thank you.

    Meadow Hill Track Meet 4/19/2021

     

    Sentinel’s Stegner Field, Corner of Higgins and South. 3:00-5:00 PM

     

    This is a remote learning day for students.  They are expected to do their remote learning as well as their track meet.  There is no transportation to Meadow Hill on remote days.  We are providing a track bus, however.  Student-Athletes are to arrive at Meadow Hill at 2:00 pm if planning to ride the bus to the track meet.  The bus will leave Meadow Hill at 2:15, for arrival at Stegner Field at 2:30.  If not riding the bus, athletes are expected to be at Stegner at 2:30.  Please do not arrive sooner, as we will not be allowed on the track until the school before us is done.  We will provide a bus back to Meadow Hill after the track meet

    NO SPECTATORS allowed at this meet.  We do need some helpers to run events and do tasks such as measuring, raking, and timing.  If you are interested in helping at this meet, please let Coach Struna know via email:  cstruna@mcpsmt.org.  Track meet helpers will be placed on a first come, first served basis.
