This morning, we learned that there have been new changes to the policies regulating the sizes of outdoor gatherings (150 max inside the athletic fields) and we will now be permitted to have limited spectators.

For our meet on Wednesday, 90 of the 150 maximum are the athletes from both squads, coaches, and meet workers. We would like to invite the parents of our seniors to have first dibs on the 60 remaining spots, limiting families to 4 spectators each.

We want some of these 60 spectators to help as "course marshals" at various positions on the course. If you are willing to fill this role, please plan to do so for the duration of the meet. Please arrive by 3:30 and meet at the trackside bleachers to be given your assignments.

The remaining spectators will be confined to the bleachers on the track. Masks and social distancing are required of all spectators. The entry for spectators will be the gate under the State Champion billboard on the west end of the student parking lot on Science Park Drive.

Please use the link to a SignUpGenius below to sign up. Families of non-seniors: please wait until 3pm on Tuesday to sign up for any remaining spots. We will host another meet in two weeks against Westview and will have another sign up for a new group of spectators. At this time, visiting teams are not granted permission to invite spectators.

Only the space inside the fencing of the school is considered the "athletic fields".

Thank you,

3) A reminder about the apparel store that closes on Monday at midnight. Link here:

We would like to thank all of our parents and families for their help in making our first week run smoothly. Please remember that we are asking athletes to make a commitment to attendance during the season, asking for "vacations" or other optional events to wait for Spring Break or after the season has concluded. For anyone who would answer "yes" to any of the check-in questions, they should stay home and report their absences to our absence reporting form:

Go Apollos!

Two things:

1) The "team store" for apparel order is open again. It will close on Monday, March 1, at midnight. Orders take about 4 weeks and will be delivered to you. The logo on the shirts this year is AWESOME.

Here is a link to the store:

Please note: there is a shipping fee. Normally, we would handle these orders as a team. This year... this seemed the safest and most efficient way to make this available.

2) Parents are getting together to try to arrange some fun and meaningful experiences for our athletes this season. I have been asked to promote our team Facebook page as a tool for communication between parents. Here is that link:

Finally, expect a detailed update about plans for next week tomorrow or Saturday. We will be racing at home on Wednesday. Arrival times at school will be similar to those for any other practice. Concrete info to follow.

Thank you for all of the support!
