This week is Fall Buffer Week. There will be no athletic practice, off-season conditioning, informal basketball shooting,  working out on wrestling mats, etc. in school owned facilities during the Fall Athletic Buffer Week. Gymnasiums will not be open outside of school hours.



Winter sports practices begin Monday, November 12th.  If you plan on going out for a winter sport and have not been out for a fall sport you need to have a physical and concussion form turned in to Coach Taul before the first day of practice. These forms are in the office or on the website.
