Our 2019 track season is about to begin with our first practice being held on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. Our season will end with the District Elementary Track Meet held on Monday, May 20th from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. at the Haverford High School/Middle School track. The rain date for the meet will be Wednesday, May 22nd.
4th grade and 5th grade students will practice on Wednesdays and Thursdays (alternating, please see schedule). If a student is unable to attend his or her scheduled practice, they should attend another practice that week, even if it is not their grade’s scheduled practice, to make up for the practice they missed. All 4th and 5th grade students will attend the last two practices on May 15th and 16th in preparation for the meet.
Practice will run from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. The district does not provide transportation home for runners. Therefore, it is very important that your child is picked up promptly at 4:30 p.m. If you are unable to pick up your child, please provide a note letting the coaches know alternate arrangements. If it is raining, a decision to cancel practice will be made before 1:00 pm and students will be asked to contact a parent or guardian from school. Practice will not be rescheduled if it is cancelled.
Please complete the attached permission slip/emergency form and sportsmanship contract and return it to school by Friday, March 29, 2019. Without a completed permission slip, your child will not be able to begin practice.
If you have any questions feel free to contact one of our 2019 track coaches Mrs. Cianfrani, Mrs. O’Brien or Ms. Livi.
