As the start of the 2014 football season approaches, we wanted to remind you of this very serious topic.
Youth sports are an important part of a child’s development – they teach sportsmanship, lifelong habits of good health, and confidence. As part of that experience, we want you to know that your child’s safety is very important to us. We take all injuries, including concussions very seriously.
Please visit the "Documents" section of our website for more information on concussions and the procedure we will be following in 2014 with regards to this particular type of injury.
* documents supporting the Free/Reduced lunch program must be mailed to Melanie Rakoczy
Melanie’s address can be found on the registration form. These forms must be received in
order to qualify for the reduced fee, and to consider your registration complete.
