FAQ’s

Is the program for the 7th and 8th graders the same as the program for the 6th graders?
Yes.  Depending on participation throughout the year, all students may participate together and do the same activities. We try to keep the 6th graders in separate groups from the 7th and 8th graders, but depending on attendance numbers, sometimes it makes sense to combine them.  If participation supports scheduling 6th graders on separate days from 7th and 8th graders, a schedule change will be made.
 
Do you sign the students in and out of the intramural program?
Attendance is taken at the beginning of each session for SPMS contract tracing purposes only. It is a “drop in” program and as such not mandatory to attend each week. Students are also not signed out at the end of the session.
May my child leave early?
The goal is to have students actively participate in the sessions. If they need/want to leave early, they may. They do not sign out when they leave.
 
Why don’t the intramural sports line up with the competitive sports, so if my child does not make a competitive team he can join that intramural sport?

We are very excited that ALL students will be able to participate in sports after school whether they make a competitive team or not. Due to field and court constraints, we cannot have intramurals and competitive sports doing the same sport simultaneously.
