These slips indicate that the student has everything on file in the District Office to participate in your activity. Each student will need to give the slip to their respective coach/sponsor so they can participate in the activity.

Spring Activities: Slip color is YELLOW

If the student is participating in a year-long activity that begins in the fall they will receive a PINK slip. Students will need a slip for each activity that they participate in.

If students do not receive a slip from Mr. Mroczek or Mrs. Verster, they CANNOT participate until all requirements are met.
