Sub request

All head coaches need to fill out a sub request for themselves and their assistant coaches who are district employees any time subs are needed due to coaching.  The Activities office would prefer to have it filled out for the whole season at the beginning of the season but it should be turned in a minimum of two weeks prior to the absence.  The district does not pay for subs for volunteer coaches.  Please send to Julie Glasson in the Activities office at the warehouse.

​Substitute Request form

Rooming list

Rooming lists should be filled out and turned in a minimum of two weeks prior to an overnight trip.  Please send rooming lists to Julie Glasson in the Activities office at the warehouse.

Equipment request

At the end of the season, please fill out an equipment request for the following year.  Submit it to the school's activity coordinator and/or principal for approval and then send it to Julie Glasson in the Activities office at the warehouse.  Submitting it the year before avoids equipment not arriving in time for the next season.
