  • Early Learning
    Students will be assessed an athletic participation fee to help offset the rising costs of extracurricular staff, coaches, officials and transportation. Athletes pay a fee for each sport in which they participate during each season. This fee will be reduced for students who qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program. The middle school charge will be per sport and can be found on the district website. To find the most current fees go to the district web site, under the student and Family services tab you will go to Athletics, and then participation fees. If you choose to pay a yearly fee that is also listed and must be paid prior to October 1.
