Junior high sports practices, REMINDER

Jr. High practices dismiss at 4:00

August 29, 2017

One of the ways that we can support our high school athletic programs is to provide more support for our junior high programs.  As you know, our junior high programs hold practices during 8th period.  On a regular school day, the bell rings at the end of 7th period at 2:52.  Students change into their uniforms and usually get in to the gym between 2:55 and 3:00.  Practices (including stretching, warming up, etc.) last until 3:40.  We understand that some students ride the afternoon bus route, and those students are usually dismissed a few minutes early to give them time to get to the bus before it leaves.  This means practices are 40 minutes or less, and that is often not enough time.

We are planning on junior high practices lasting until 4:00 on all weekdays except Wednesdays.  This includes junior high volleyball, football, basketball, and track.

If your student rides the afternoon bus route, we would like to ask if you can make an arrangement to get him/her home.  We understand that transportation arrangements cannot always be made, and if that is the case, we will still dismiss your student in time to get on the bus.

This means that if your junior high student is in sports, and does NOT ride the bus, you should expect them to be at school until 4:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Please contact Mr. Heitz, 7-12 principal (jheitz@wakefieldschools.org) or Mr. Brenn, Athletic Director (mbrenn@wakefieldschools.org) if you have any questions or concerns.
