For Thursday’s JrHi games against Central Cass in Hillsboro due to the large number of players on both volleyball teams, we are asking the following from the fans: - That parent/sibling/grandparents of our 7th Grade team only attend the 7th grade match (4:30 pm) and leave at the conclusion of the game (Unless you have an 8th grader playing as well) - That parents/sibling/grandparents of our 8th Grade team only attend the 8th grade match (5:30 )(do not arrive early to watch the 7th grade game) This is an effort to reduce the number of people in the gym at one time and to help physical distancing efforts and to keep both communities safe. Thank you for your cooperation!

At this time our schools will stay open and we will continue to provide a safe environment for all of our students and staff.
