We have decided not to use the buses to get to our meets this season. Students will be getting there on your own. Students cannot give rides to other students unless it is all right with both parent/guardians to do so. Parent/guardians are solely responsible for their son's transportation to our meets. If your son is not able to get a ride to a meet, then have them communicate that to me, and I can connect a possible driver for them.
Thank you Coach Steve Hoag for all you have given to us over the years! You have been such a genuine and caring person to have been around. We have been so fortunate to have known you, and you will be so missed!!
