Field Days for Middle and High School

Middle School Field Day is June 2nd and High School Field Day is June 3rd. Both Field Days will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m..  We will have several activities in the gym and surrounding athletic fields. Students participating in Field Day will be assigned to either C or D lunch. We ask that students do not bring backpacks, but bring or wear sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. The Dress Code for Field Day is mid-thigh or longer shorts, t-shirts (no tank tops or cutoff shirts). Please, no jackets or hoodies and cell phones must be off and hidden.  Please bring $2 for optional afternoon popcorn/water snack during movie.

Students that wish to opt out of either Field Day will need to turn in an Opt Out form that has been completed by a parent or guardian by June 1. The purpose of Field Day is FUN and MINER PRIDE!
