WE ARE SKIING!!!

Hi everyone! We will be able to have a practice day tomorrow, Thursday 1/5!!!

So Thursday 1/4-  will be a practice night at Southington

Our ski locker is located in the field house near the pool lobby entrance. Please arrive at 7:35 as we will load skis and bags into the closet. The locker closes at 7:50 so that everyone (including me) can get to class on time.

We will be leaving school at 3:15. I am double-checking who turned in checks by noon today. So please check your school email for confirmation that you have a seat for tomorrow.  If I did not receive a check from you today in the envelope outside room 3061 (and you have not alerted me as to why) you may not be able to practice tomorrow as we have a limited number of seats due to transportation issues.

Friday- day off

Time Trials will be held on MONDAY January 9th

Please bring in a check made out to Staples High School for $45 with Ski Team- time trials noted in the memo. Checks will be collected in the envelope in Room 3061 and are due by noon 1/6.

UPDATE Jan 3 at 2:45 pm

This week is soggy and Southington has already announced that they will be closed on 1/3 AND 1/4.  The hope is that we will be able to have a practice day on Thursday 1/5- but that will be dependent upon how things go in the next 48 hours.

So here is the UPDATED plan (as of 1/3 at 2:45 pm)

Tuesday- no conditioning, but please start getting ready for your exams. Bring in your check for practice which will hopefully be held on Wednesday.

Wednesday–  there will not be practice at the hill but we will hold a classroom practice to review how to go through a course for anyone who is new to racing or wants a refresher.

Thursday–  we are planning on holding a practice night at Southington. However, they may be closed due to the warm weather and anticipated rain.  If we do have practice, we will be leaving school at 3:15.

Friday- day off

Time Trials will be held on MONDAY January 9th
