Parents who did not attend the fall sports meeting in late July need to watch a video of the meeting before their child can participate in sports. The video can be viewed from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays in the school office.
“All forms from the presentation will need to be signed an filled out,” WHS athletic director Carl Eggebrecht said. “We recommend that these forms are turned in at lest a few days prior to the first day of practice.”
Athletes are asked to report to the school office 45 minutes prior to their first practice to make sure all sport-related information has been turned in and cleared.
“If you did not have a concussion test last year, you should report to the main office one hour prior to receiving your equipment or the time your practice will begin,” Eggebrecht said.
