We will have a practice at 4:30 after school on Friday since it is a bi-week in football. We should be done around 5:30pm. Sectionals will be before or after depending on the section leaders.
Here is the Itinerary for Saturday’s contest in Mesquite. If you wish to sign out your student, please make sure that you come to one of the directors. If you are requesting someone other than the parent to sign out a student, we MUST have a note from the parent by the previous day for principal approval. This is school policy and is in place to help protect your child.
