News and Announcements

Dear Students, Parents, and Coaches,
The school administration has just notified us that no student parking will be available until 3:30 p.m. at either Monte Vista or Los Cerros on Friday. The campus is hosting a professional development event with over 2,000 attendees. Therefore, track practice will be held at 3:45 on Friday

There will no longer be an option to attend practice at 9:00 a.m.  The 9:00 a.m. practice is cancelled. 

As Coach Kindell mentioned at practice yesterday, Friday's practice is NOT optional. Attendance will be taken. If you are not able to attend practice for whatever reason, you must log your absence using the XC Stats "Planned Absence" feature. Please do not email coaches about absences. Instructions for how to do this are below my name (for App, and for Browser).
