Fall 2018 Information:

Hello:
As we finish this school year, the Activities Office is already looking ahead to the fall.  Below you will find information on fall start dates, registration, and schedules.  This information is tentative, but fairly accurate.  There may be some changes made, so as always, please continue to check the Activities Office page on the district website.  We will be sending out another reminder email as the summer winds down, so please be aware of that as well. There are also attachments to this email that the Football Program has asked us to hand out so you can see those as well if this pertains to you.

The Activities Office will be closed starting Thursday, June 7th.  We will be back in the office part-time the second week in August.  You can check the website for our hours (they will be posted on there by the end of June).

Start Dates:
Girls Cross Country Grades 7-12:
Starts Monday August 13 and practices run from 7:30am to 9:30am before school starts and once school starts we will practice from 3-5:00pm.  Girls should meet at the field house and on the first day and they will need to bring water and locks (coaches will be giving out lockers). Runners will need good pair of running shoes as well.  Those doing summer conditioning will benefit immensely.  If athletes run 150 documented miles they will earn a reward!

Information on Registering:
Registration for these activities will not be available until mid-July due to a system rollover that needs to be done at the conclusion of each school year.  Once registration is available, there will be an email sent out letting families know, and directions on how to register (the registration process should not change from this school year to next).

Activity fee will be $150.00 (HS) and $115.00 (MS) for athletics and $95.00 (HS) and $85.00 (MS) for arts and other activities.  If you absolutely do not want pay online, you can still pay by check or cash in the activities office, but ALL of the forms still need to be filled out online and registration will not be complete until the fee is paid.  There will be a family cap of $650.00 for the year.

A REMINDER: all new 7th graders need to receive a MSHSL Sports Qualifying Physical from their physician before they will be allowed to participate in MSHSL sponsored Athletics.  Physicals are only good for three years, so 10th graders and other whose physical has expired will need to have another physical done in order to participate as well.  If you have any questions about whether or not your son or daughter’s physical is current please contact the activities office.  Appropriate physical forms can be downloaded at

A hard copy of the current sports qualifying physical still needs to be turned into the Activities Office before participation in activities will be allowed.

Other Importation Information:
Athletic Schedules are available online at www.graniteridgeconference.org Fall 2018 schedules are currently available, and Winter 2018-2019 and Spring 2019 will be available when school resumes.
