4th Grade leave for a track meet at 11:45 AM - 3:20 PM

Our district-wide 4th and 5th-grade track meet is scheduled for Monday, May 9, 2022.  The meet will be held at the Hastings High School track. The 4th grade and 5th grade will compete at separate times (5th grade in the morning / 4th grade in the afternoon). The 4th-grade classes will eat at school BEFORE leaving for the track meet. All students will be walking together to the track.

Some information for the day:

Students should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes.

Have them wear a Longfellow shirt or another redshirt if possible. 

Make sure your student has sunscreen for the afternoon. 

Students are allowed to bring bottles of water for the morning/afternoon, but no other drinks are needed. 

Students will leave their backpacks and other school materials at school.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend the track meet, but they will need to sit or stand along the fence by the track. Students are expected to sit with the class in the stands. Parents cannot be in the stands during the meet.

5th-grade students will return to school after the track meet. They will walk back to the school. 4th-grade students will leave directly from the high school track at the end of the school day, so please make arrangements to pick up your child from the track or have him/her walk from there. 

4th-grade students who are finished with their events will be allowed to leave no earlier than 3:20, but students who need to finish events will need to stay in the track meet continues after 3:20. (We plan on being finished around 3:20.) The 5th-grade students will leave school just like normal that day. 

If you have any questions about the track meet, please contact Mr. Pedroza, the PE teacher, or your child's classroom teacher.

Thank you and see you all there!
