Eighth Grade Boys and Girls Track

Dear St. Vrain Middle Schools, 

Thank you for your continued partnership and support in advancing the well-being of our students. We are pleased to announce that St. Vrain Valley Schools is able to offer track to our eighth grade students beginning on April 19. Registration will open April 8 with a fee of $40 per athlete. Students on free and reduced lunch qualify for a lower registration rate based on a sliding scale. The track season will include practices as well as three regular season dual meets on May 4, May 11, and May 18.

Participants will follow COVID-19 protocols that have been established by CDPHE and CHSAA including daily temperature checks, a brief COVID-19 questionnaire, and mask wearing until social distancing can be maintained. 

Additionally, St. Vrain programs have implemented comprehensive, research-based safety and well-being measures that adhere to CDPHE guidelines and CDC best practices. To adhere to these guidelines, shared equipment will be limited among participants, group sizes will be reduced, and there will be alterations to traditional event rules. For the complete details on track offerings this season, please read below.

We are looking forward to a successful track season and celebrating our student athletes.

Sincerely,

Chase McBride
Executive Director, Activities, Fine Arts, Athletics, PE and Health
