Message for Parents of Athletes

We will be having our annual Athletics Parent Meeting Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 6:30 pm in Hobgood Auditorium. At this meeting, we will be discussing issues related to concussions, heat illnesses, and infectious diseases. This information will be useful in helping your student athlete stay healthy throughout the season. There will be some paperwork for you to fill out so please bring a pen with you to the meeting.

Other topics that will be discussed at the meeting will include parent emails and pre-game meals. We will also be introducing our new team physician, Dr. Warren “Skip” MacDonald.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
