10 Athletics Notes:
1. All Fall Schedules (and some winter schedules) can be found on the tab for the specific team or on https://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/byers-bulldogs-(byers,co)/home.htm
2. CHSAA has moved away from using Planet High School for Paperwork. The new Platform (rSchools) will not let parents upload paperwork. Therefore it must all be turned in by hand. There are only two items we need. 1. Updated physical (signed and dated by doctor) 2. Back Page of Athletic Handbook (both sides completely filled out and signed)
3. Masks and Quarantine: Per Mr. Turrell’s voicemail there are no mask requirements at the current moment. However, the following scenarios must be understood.
- Fully Vaccinated person: No mask required: If this person comes into contact with a Covid case, they will NOT be quarantined.
- Unvaccinated person that WEARS a mask: Comes into contact with Covid case, they will NOT be quarantined.
- Unvaccinated person that Does NOT wear a mask: Comes into contact with Covid case, may be Quarantined.
4. Athletics Fees: The Athletics Fee for a sport must be paid BEFORE the student can play in the first contest. This can be taken care of online on infinite campus or at the front office. This is a change from the past. BE AWARE and PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
5. Free and reduced lunch forms must be filled out and turned in at least a week before the first contest in order to qualify for free and reduced athletics fees. These forms have been (or will be) handed out by fall coaches, or they can be picked up in the district office or high school office.
6. Family Passes: $100. Passes will be printed and will allow 4 family members in. Passes must be presented at the gate. All people entering with the pass must come in at the same time. Passes may not be accepted at all games.
7. Chain of Command: (In order)
1. You talk to the coach (Athlete)
2. Parent talks to the Coach
