The annual athlete-parent meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, in the MHS Theater.
This meeting covers the details and information that all parents of athletes need to know before their child participates. This year there will be a combined McPherson High and McPherson Middle School meeting, eliminating the need for parents to attend two separate meetings if they have athletes at both MHS and MMS.
The meeting will begin with a general session with MHS Activities Director Shane Backhus and new MMS Activities Director Chris Allen, that all parents of any athlete, regardless of season, should attend.
Topics will include student eligibility guidelines, safety and concussion management, substance abuse policy, conflict of interest policy, Booster Club information and other KSHSAA and USD 418 guidelines. The activities directors will also be available to answer any questions parents may have about participating in a school sponsored activity.
Following the general session, the fall coaches (football, volleyball, cross country, girls tennis and boys soccer) of both MHS and MMS will have breakout sessions with parents regarding their up-coming sports seasons, which begin on August 17.
