Parents of North Middle School Track Participants: We are excited that your son/daughter has decided to participate in our middle school track program! We would just like to touch base with everyone and answer some of your questions before the season begins. We are currently experiencing some growing pains and based on student sign-ups we will have record highs of students out for track and field. In order to accommodate the high volume of students we will start with a modified schedule. Coaches are asking athletes to dedicate March 25th to May 9th to Track and make every effort to attend practice and compete. ****PLEASE make sure your child has an updated physical on file at the High School office. Practice runs on a daily basis from 3:15-5:00. Coaches should be notified as soon as possible if your child will not attend practice. Failure to do so will jeopardize events and participation in Meets. Students should bring a water bottle and bring clothing appropriate for going outside in South Dakota spring weather. We will make every attempt to go outside. Lockers are available for issue to store items. Please fill out attached emergency contact information using the following https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdR2_mkpGdkdBFedY0ZYTD9eepq2QUnDChse9-qMO4XFBYE-w/viewform.

For every 20 minutes a student reads, they will be given a ticket which can be entered into a drawing. This is where we would greatly appreciate your help! Do you have any connections to possible prizes?!? Restaurant coupons, free meals, gift cards? Or would you be willing to make a donation either as a prize (games, gift cards, school supplies) or a monetary donation?
