Unless otherwise noted, all Varsity basketball games, both boys and girls, are preceded by a JV game with the exception being the NEC/Dak XII Clash. The start of that JV game is the time listed on the schedule--typically 6pm. C games, when played, will start typically at five. C games have their own schedule and can be found on the school website. The double-header format has traditionally been Girls JV, Boys JV, Girls Varsity, Boys Varsity, with the next two Saturdays Girls JV games starting at 1. This will be a rolling schedule, but a common practice is to estimate the start times after the Girls JV game to be roughly 2:15, 3:30, and 5:00. A 4:00pm start on weekday doubleheader will typically look roughly like 4, 5:15, 6:30, and 8.
Please make sure that when receiving a phone message from the school that you say, "hello" or something like a greeting when answering the phone. The notification system is looking for verification that a person is on the phone before it plays the message, if not, it waits for a voicemail identifier so that it can play the message. Thank you.
Reminder from Sheyenne Transportation: Parents should drop their children off on the north side of the Elementary, not where the buses unload. Thank you!
Remember to complete the symptom self-check for each of your children before sending them to school or school activities each day. If they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, sore throat, cough, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache loss of taste/smell), it is critical that they do not attend school or school activities until they've been evaluated by their provider.
