Dear Parents of North Harrison Middle School Cross-Country Runners:
Our cross-country season will begin this year on Thursday, August, 1. Practice will take place at the North Harrison Cross-Country course (located behind the high school parking lot) from 5:30-7:00. All participants must have a 2013 physical/release form on file with the middle school office before they will be allowed to participate in practice. A physical form can be picked up from the middle school office or printed off from the school’s website.
We are beginning our season before school starts this year because many area schools have gone to the balanced calendar and are beginning their season’s earlier. Our first scheduled meet is Aug. 22. Any participant must have completed 10 official practices before they are allowed to participate in a competition. That’s why it is important to be sure that the physical/release forms have been completed before the first day of practice.
More information will be given to you about the season at a later time. This is just basic information since we are beginning our season prior to students starting back to school. All practices will be from after school until 5:30 once the school year starts.
Upcoming Practice Schedule:
Thursday, Aug. 1 - 5:30-7:00
Friday, Aug. 2 - 5:30-7:00
Monday, Aug. 5 - 5:30-7:00
Tuesday, Aug. 6 - 5:30-7:00
Wednesday, Aug. 7- 3:30-5:30 (First student school day)
*A back to school orientation is scheduled for Aug. 1 at 6:00 P.M. Your child can still practice that evening.
Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if your child still plans on running cross-country this upcoming season so I know that this informational email was received by you. I would like to have a better idea of how many runners we will be having this season.
I look forward to your child’s participation on the North Harrison Middle School Cross-Country team!
