Millie Hutchinson (email@example.com)
Dawn Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org)
***We will also be using Talking Points to communicate, GFMS Facebook & Website & we will set up a Google Classroom for the students.
Practice will be after school on Monday through Thursday until 4:15 at GFMS.
Students will change out & meet in the cafeteria each day after school.
Please note, a couple practices will be at South Caldwell High School. However, we will still meet in the cafeteria as usual and ride the bus over. Students will know ahead of time, and will need to be picked up on those few days at South Caldwell at 4:15.
If a student is absent from practice, please notify the coach.
For safety, runners must wear lace-up tennis shoes at practice and meets.
If tardiness becomes habitual, they will be dismissed from the team.
If an athlete is walking home from practice, a note must be given to the coach prior to the start of practice.

Because the high schools are hosting the track meets, the conference has mandated that each child on the track team must pay $15. This will cover all ticket costs for the season. This will actually be cheaper for the families as there will be NO COST at the gate. Checks or Cash accepted-Please make checks payable to Granite Falls Booster Club. If assistance is needed, just let us know.
All players will ride the bus to the meets, unless they are a Caldwell Connect student. Athletes must be signed out after all meets if they are not riding the bus back. Students will be picked up for our home meets at South Caldwell.
Student-athletes are role models for the school. Their behavior in class is a reflection of the whole team. If a student is misbehaving during school,we will address the issue. If it continues, running at meets might be limited. If a player is in ISS, she will not be allowed to participate in the next meet. If an athlete has excessive absences, is in ISS more than once, she will be removed from the team. If a runner receives OSS, she is off the team.
The following are requirements for being a student-athlete:
A current and updated physical
Pass 3 of 4 core classes from the previous semester
No OSS or no more than one ISS
We look forward to another successful year!!
