BASKETBALL SEASON PASS
This year we are offering season passes to all of our home basketball games and tournaments. Season pass holders will save approximately 50% if they attend every home game. The price is $35 per adult, $20 per child and a $100 family max for immediate family members (i.e. mother, father, child). The regular ticket price is $3.00 per adult and $2.00 per student, per game. If you are interested please come to the School Office to purchase your season pass. Let’s go Braves!
STUDENT DRESS FOR ATHLETIC GAMES
Student Spectators (Including Elementary): With the exception of special events school standard dress must be worn for all school activities including after school games, Saturday tournaments and evening events.
Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school. A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child. Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea. No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
School standard dress must be worn for all school activities. Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice. Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games. Important: Parents please remember that gym shoes for indoor P.E. and for rainy day recess must have a non-marking sole. We recommend Velcro fastened shoes if your child cannot tie his/her shoes.
