Good Afternoon SV Community,
Though it may not feel like it outside, spring sports has begun. We had a great turnout with many of our teams this past Friday and Saturday. We are still in major need of student athletes- especially male student athletes. Specifically for our boys Volleyball and Boys lacrosse teams. Please make sure to register online asap so that you can join. Please make sure you are checking in with your student athletes teachers and monitoring their academics via the mymcps parental portal . There should be no excuse for not being aware of the academic progress of your student athlete.
Please keep reading for important updates and recaps from our athletic events.

The Athletic department would like to remind all student athletes and parent/guardians of student athletes that student athletes are required to be in class every day for all 7 periods. A parental note is not an excused absence.
We would also like to remind all student athletes that they are required to change and participate in pe in order to participate in a practice or game that day.
Attention: New Policy. If a student athlete receives more than 2 tardies from class during a week period- they are suspended for a contest. It is important that our student athletes understand the important of being on time and working hard in all of their classes each day.
And finally a reminder that all of our student athletes have made a commitment to excellence and therefore should be attending practice every day and failure to do so may lead to dismissal from the their team
