Important Track and Field Reminders

The warm weather has arrived and the students in Grades 4 to 8 are preparing and looking forward to participating in our School Track and Field Meet on May 16th at St Benedict Catholic Secondary School.

All students will participate in 3 track /1 field event OR 2 track / 2 field events. To ensure our success for the day, we have a few reminders for students and families to bring the following items:

  1. A nutritional lunch and snacks in a cooler, if possible – please avoid sending any milk products (e.g., mayo as it may be sitting in the hot sun all day!)
  2. Plenty of water in non-breakable containers.
  3. Sunscreen is essential (kindly send tube/bottle sunscreen not aerosol).
  4. Blanket or towel to sit on or to cover up with.
  5. Track pants, sweatshirt, appropriate length shorts, t-shirt, wind pants and jacket, and suitable running shoes. (No spikes).
  6. Umbrella and/or hat for the sun – there is very little shade – students need to protect themselves from the sun. Sunglasses are recommended.
  7. Raincoat if the weather prescribes it.
  8. There is no concession booth for the students. There is no need to send any money with your child.
  9. Students are not permitted to leave the Track & Field meet at any time during the day or leave the designated area assigned to us.  This includes going to the plaza at lunch.
  10. There are washrooms indoors that will be designated for our students only and a supervisor will assist students with washroom visits.
  11. In between their events, students will be sitting in an assigned area with their class. We suggest bringing materials like books, cards, a sketch pad, or small travel games to entertain themselves. They are also encouraged to watch the events near their location and cheer on their peers.
  12. NO ELECTRONIC DEVICES (cell phones, ipods, MP3 players, video games, etc.)
  13. Parents are reminded not to park in the front of the school. This area is reserved for patrons of the Library.
  14. Students will walk to track and back to the school.  Should a parent be on site to watch and would like to take their child home at the end of the meet – you must sign him/her out with a teacher (name & signature).  This will allow you to take your own child(ren) home. We cannot release friends to ride home with another family. Thank you for understanding.

We are also kindly reminding everyone that we are guests of St Benedict’s.
