    Behavior:  As an athlete for Middle School East, our athletes are ambassadors of our school.  As an ambassador of our school, we expect our athletes’ behavior to be exceptional.  We want our athletes to be positive role models for others to see and follow.

    Important Policies to remember:  

    • Students need to be passing all of their classes to be on the Cross Country team.  The MSE activities director will check to see if players are passing all of their classes at mid-tri.
    • Students need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or compete that night.  Students with a doctor’s appointment may be excused from this requirement if they have documentation from the doctor referencing the appointment.  Make sure to bring this note from the doctor to MSE attendance secretary Ms. Cashion.
    • Your coaches will expect the players to be at practice every day.
    • Missed practices may result in reduced competition time.  

    Clothes:  Make sure to have warm clothes in your locker at all times.  There will be some very cold days in the fall, dress smart.
