Mini Halloween Pumpkins

As we transition from the fall to winter season, athletics for Middle School will be a little different. We will not have our traditional indoor sports for now as they are deemed moderate to high activity with close contact. It is the hope that as conditions improve, we will go back to an athletic block with seasonal sports in 2021. In the meantime, we will extend our current season (cross country will become track & field, field hockey, soccer, and tennis) for students to be active.
We will officially begin our winter season on Nov. 2. All activities will be outdoors, so students will need to dress accordingly. If the weather keeps us indoors, we will offer each grade a yoga session or a low impact activity during athletics. The hope is for us to be outdoors for as long as possible and as often as possible. All safety protocols (masking, physical distancing, no shared equipment, and non-contact drills) will continue. Students will use hand sanitizer after each activity. If you have any questions regarding athletics, please contact Michelle Crowley.
