To the student athletes, parents, and fans of SAD #13,

 

            Despite the challenges, the fall athletics season is starting. The players are ready to go and the athletic department has worked hard putting together schedules and policies that follow this year’s Department of Education, Maine Principals Association, and league guidelines. We are offering Varsity Golf, Middle School and Varsity Cross Country, and Middle School and Varsity Soccer. The schedules should be coming home from practices. If you need one they are in the Valley office and posted online @ https://www.sad13.org/sports.

 

For the middle school games, we will be allowing one parent per athlete for the home and away games. The players are younger and having a parent on the property for both teams is a good idea. Our middle school teams are also coed so there are fewer players. This should keep the numbers under 100 per the governor’s mandate.  

 

The varsity games are played following MPA and league rules as well as gathering size restrictions. The East/West Conference and Mountain Valley Conference schools we are playing cannot allow spectators because of league rule. Being part of the league holds us and them to that. When we play Greenville, which is in the Penobscot Valley Conference, we will be able to allow two spectators per player for the home team. Tickets will be issued to players, and we are going to use those games as Senior nights.

 

We have room to have seven different volunteer event workers for each middle school and varsity home game. They include timer, bookkeeper, ball personnel, camera people and gate worker. Those slots will be open for the public to fill starting with the senior parents first. Slots will rotate by grade until all positions are filled. Parents can call Corey Farnham, at the high school office (207-672-3300), to sign up for a position.

           

           Best regards,

                  Dan McDonald

The ­­­­­­­­RSU 83/MSAD 13 utilizes assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students.  Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment programs, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing.  If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.
