HOW TO BE PREPARED AND HAVE FUN AT THE ZONE TRACK MEET!
THURSDAY – MAY 25, 2017
1. WEATHER The Track Meet normally runs rain or shine, as long as the site is safe. In the event that the meet has to be postponed, it will be announced on CKNW 980 AM Radio that morning between 7:15 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. It will also be posted on our school website (steves.sd38.bc.ca). Please do not phone the school. If the meet is cancelled, we will enjoy a regular school day.
2. LUNCH There is a concession stand behind the grandstands, but there are few nutritional items for sale. A bag lunch is suggested (which should be labeled), and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. STUDENT SAFETY IS IMPORTANT, THEREFORE, STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO GO TO MCDONALDS OR THE MALL, ETC. It is helpful to bring a labeled backpack to hold your food and extra clothing.
3. CLOTHING You will need warm, layered clothing, sunscreen and a hat, in addition to the regular physical education strip of T-shirt, shorts, warm-up suit and running shoes. Be prepared for cold, wet, windy or extremely warm weather. In case of rain, bring extra dry clothing to change into (socks, shoes, sweatshirt, etc.). Please label all belongings and do not bring any valuables. Come dressed in your P.E. clothing.
