Attention Athletes: We are eager to begin workouts as early as June 1st for those athletes who wish to participate. As we work to open facilities back up, it is important that we continue to follow safety protocols. Doing so will help keep our students and staff as safe as possible. During this reintegration period, we will follow the guidelines recommended by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Association(OSSAA). The link to the guidelines is provided below this message. In addition, athletes are asked to bring their own face covering(mask, bandana, etc) and will be asked to wear them during certain activities, including weight training. Athletes should also provide their own water bottle as no personal equipment can be shared.

Parents can be assured that we will be cleaning and disinfecting equipment and surfaces as well as have adequate supplies for handwashing. Social distancing will be practiced when we are able. If we all do our part, we can minimize the opportunity for exposure. Students will not be penalized if they elect an alternate workout they can perform away from district facilities. Coaches will provide an alternate workout upon request.

If you have any questions, please contact Carol Testa(AD) at 442-0099 Ext. #504 or via email at
