    Kirn’s Red Out Event is Tuesday February 12th. We are raising awareness about Heart Disease by sponsoring a school wide Red Out for the Varsity and JV girls basketball games that day. You may wear your own red shirt but Miss Hughes is also selling Red Out shirts for the American Heart Association for $10, she also has keychains, lanyards and bracelets for $1. All money is donated and we are trying to beat last years all time high total of $2592.48. T-shirts range in size youth small - adult 3XL. Come see Miss Hughes during PE or before or after school.

    One fact about Heart Disease you maybe didn’t know is that some forms are preventable and can be avoided by simply eating healthy; exercising daily and living alcohol and drug free. Remember you Heart is “Worth The Effort” All day, every day! Miss Hughes

    Middle School Students: Middle school students attending football games are expected to sit/stand on the bleachers that have been designated for middle school students. Failure to do this will result in students having to be seated with their parents, or if no parent is present, the student will be removed from the game.

    All Students: Students are not allowed to bring skateboards, bicycles, footballs, hoverboards, or other such items into the stadium.

    No students will play on the grass behind the end zones, near the concession stand, or under the bleachers. If caught loitering in these areas, students will be asked to sit with their parents, or if no parent is present, you will be removed from the event.

     

    All student behavior is expected to be school appropriate. Any student caught participating in actions deemed inappropriate by a staff member will be removed from the game and not allowed at future games.

     

    All students are expected to leave the complex within 20 minutes after the completion of the game. Please make sure students have a ride arranged.
