REMEMBER:

MS ATHLETICS
  • The administrative team of the California School District would like to respectfully remind everyone that outside food and beverages are not allowed while attending an event on school property.  You will be asked to leave them at the gate before entering the event.  This policy will be in effect through the rest of the year.
  • The athletic eligibility portion of our student handbook has been amended to reflect the MSHSAA standards.  If you are interested in reading it, it can be found on the website under the Middle School Athletics.
  • Sports Physicals - If you are interested in participating in a sport, but do not have an up-to-date physical, you can receive a blank copy from the office or it can be found on the district homepage titled "MSHSAA Grades 7-12 Sports Physical Form".  Be sure to get them in as soon as possible, because you can not practice without one. 
    • The Moniteau Co. Health Center office is closed from 12 to 1pm each day, there will be no physicals scheduled during this time.
      • Jerene Huff, RN/Administrator - Moniteau County Health Center
