In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.

Parents/Athlete,

Thank you for your interest in participating on the Track team. Parents, it is important that your son or daughter attend all regular season practices and as much preseason conditioning as possible. Please contact us as soon as possible if they will not be attending. A simple text message is fine.

Communication – The best way for us to get messages out to all the team members is using a program called “Remind”. Athletes and parents should sign up to receive text or email alerts from me. To register for the River Ridge Track Team 2021 Remind alerts simply text @k96fg4 to the following phone # 81010.

All athletes must have a current physical, participation and consent/release forms to include the Covid Waiver form turned in to us before you can participate in practice.

Pasco Co and RRHS Guideline for High School Athletics – Any person with positive symptoms will not be permitted to take part in training sessions and should contact his or her primary care provider or other appropriate health-care professional

  • Students should provide and use their own gear or supplies including hand sanitizer.
  • Students should wear their own appropriate workout clothing (do not share clothing), and individual clothing/towels should be washed and cleaned after every workout immediately upon returning home.
  • Hand sanitizer should be plentiful at all meets and practices.
  • Athletes should inform coaches immediately when they are not feeling well.
  • Cloth face coverings required when not actively participating in events and during photos.

Considerations for Parents

  • Make sure your child and immediate household members are without symptoms of from illness before participating in practice and competition (if there is doubt stay home).
  • Provide personal items for your child and clearly label them.
  • Make sure your child has all their athletic forms prior to participating in any school organized conditioning and/or practices…Physical, Liability forms, notarized doc, etc..

Transportation – Students will be required to provide their own transportation to almost all meets. We will ensure all athletes have rides (carpool etc) the day before the meet.

Fund Raising – The primary fund raisers are sponsorships on the Track Sponsor T-shirt and the “on-line” fundraiser. Funds will be used to cover track meet entry fees and track equipment. We also sell sponsor banners that can be displayed at the football field or gymnasium if interested.

Varsity, JV Determination – Most track events consist of 4 varsity athletes. However, some meets have “open” events that allow us to use “JV” athletes. We will make every effort to include as many athletes as possible at the meets and we may encourage athletes to compete in events that we have openings.
