MMS Sports Update and Volleyball Venue 08/31/21

Dear Parents and Guardians:

We are excited to see your kids tomorrow for the first day of school!  I am writing to give some reminders about MMS sports and to also notify you of a few changes regarding MMS Volleyball.  

  • Wednesday, Sept. 1        School begins!  8:15 am
  • Wednesday, Sept. 1        Volleyball begins for 7th and 8th Graders, 3:15 pm, Bear Den
  • Wednesday, Sept. 1        Football practices continue
  • Wednesday, Sept. 1        Cross Country begins for 6th, 7th and 8th Graders (Meet on the track after school)

  • Wednesday, Sept. 8        Volleyball begins for 6th Graders, 3:15, Bear Den (also B Volleyball at this time)

Note: As indicated above, 6th grade volleyball will not begin until Wednesday, Sept. 8.  B Volleyball will not practice on the 7th due to home MHS volleyball in the Bear Den.

Fans at home volleyball matches:  Moscow School District will be allowing fans at our home volleyball matches with the requirement that all fans wear masks and the expectation to socially distance.  We are relocating our home volleyball matches to the Bear Den this fall and we are very thankful to the MHS Volleyball program for helping us provide a safer environment with more breathing room for our matches.  Please see the attached letter from Dr. Bailey regarding mask wearing at our home events:  Moscow School District Spectator Requirements for Attending.pdf   It is our goal to keep schools open and to create events for our student athletes that are as safe as possible.  Thank you for adhering to these requirements.  Note:  Masks are required in other communities/schools as well if your are planning to attend.  At this time Clarkston, Lapwai and Pullman are all requiring spectators to wear masks.  We recommend mask wearing at all indoor events wherever they may be.   

Please consult the sports calendar on the MMS website for the latest schedules and I will continue to include sports in my weekly updates, including any changes that may occur.  Please contact me if you have questions.  See you soon!
