MS/HS Athletic News
Last April, in an effort to balance meeting the needs of our students/student athletes while also safeguarding our facilities and protecting important family time, the P-W School Board voted to adopt a new facility usage policy. Since the greatest savings in utility costs are through limiting access to areas beyond the front of the building, and to more clearly define participation times, the new policy restricts all activities on Sundays, other than off-season conditioning in the JH gym. We believe that this policy helps protect our facilities, honors the needs of our sports/extra-curricular/community programs and also will help define for parents what they can expect regarding their student's commitment to school activities on the weekend. For example, an in-season athlete knows that they may have a Saturday practice, but they are free all day on Sunday. An off-season athlete knows that they may have their conditioning workout on Sunday, but they are free on Saturday. We will continue to emphasize with our coaches and students that in-season athletes are not to participate in off-season workouts so every student will have at least one day every weekend where they can be confident they won't have any school activity. Any proposed activity, whether sports or extra-curricular, that would take place on a Sunday needs approval from the Superintendent. Exceptions will be granted for things such as our varsity teams wanting to practice in the fieldhouse on a Sunday before the district playoffs begin, making up for days of practice missed during the week due to weather, an end-of-the-season award night or drama rehearsal. Generally speaking, we hope this policy makes things very straightforward for our students and their families in terms of weekend obligations and also protect the facility while reducing costs. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Cooper at (989) 587-5100.
