In honour of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the provincial government has decided that schools and government services will be closed on Monday, September 19th. This will be a “one-off” provincial holiday.
As the school will be closed on that day, there will be no tryouts on that day as well.
Tuesday, September 20th will be Day 3 on the schedule.
Here is the information you need to know to register for the race on Saturday as well as any future races. You need to go to the NLAA cross country series website using the following link:
This website will answer some of the questions you and your family may have and it contains the link to register for the race. If you go down to the section on Registration and Fees, you can click on the link there for “Online Registration & Payment”. Here you will enter the information about yourself to register for the race. We are a NLAA affiliated school and have paid our membership fee for the year, so please remember to enter the code MDJH to get the discount. The race will then cost only $5.00 to complete the registration.
Below is also a link for race times as well as a course map. Grade 7s race at 11:00, Grades 8 and 9 race at 11:15. They recommend arriving 45 minutes to an hour before your race to get your race bib number, which must be worn, and to get warmed up and ready to run.
We will practise again Friday, September 16th, and meet at the main entrance of the school at 2:20. Practice will wrap up at 3:00.
Thank you for your interest and support,
