UPDATE (2/23/2021): If your student is attending practice on a non-cohort day they will need to complete one of the following attestation forms prior to being admitted to practice. 
If an attestation is not presented, a coach or athletic director will take their temperature and complete the survey.  Students showing a fever or any COVID related symptoms will be asked to go home.  Please do not send your student to practice if they are not feeling well.
If your daughter or son has had a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 at ANY TIME, you will need to provide a sign doctor's release confirming that they are safe to return to athletic activities.

Activity Bus Access Must Be Reserved

Activity buses will be available for athletes that need a ride after practices.  Pick-up time at Mountainside will be at 5:00pm.  All athletes will have an assigned seat and must wear a mask.  Failure to comply or other misconduct will result in loss of activity bus privileges.  If you wish to register for the activity bus, please complete the following survey: [click here]


UPDATE (2/11/2021): Please register your student-athlete for their sports, regardless of season, as soon as possible and avoid choosing 2 sports in the same season.  Our registration numbers determine our game/practice schedules, coaching positions, and how we can utilize our facilities.  Last minute registration has the potential to cause multiple issues for our program and your child’s ability to participate on the first day of the season.

  • All eligibility, registration, & sports-physical requirements remain the same as previous years. Please register on Family ID as soon as possible.

District Athletic Philosophy
The philosophy of the Mead School District is founded and based upon the principles identified in the district’s foundational student learning goals. Included in this mission is the belief that human wellness and aesthetic experiences are integral parts of the educational experience. To serve that mission, the primary function of the interscholastic and intramural programs is to provide participatory opportunities for as many students as possible. These programs seek to enhance the psychological, emotional, social, and physical development of each student.
The Mead School District believes that participation in athletic programs can enhance the development of the values of cooperation, honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, respect, perseverance, and commitment. Students will be encouraged to develop their athletic skills and compete to the best of their abilities. The Mead School District is obligated to provide a supportive environment in which students can pursue athletic experiences that maximize their potential. While individual achievements are valued and encouraged, team achievements are of primary importance. Athletics, in addition, can make significant contributions to the educational experience of all Mead students, faculty, staff, and district patrons through the cultivation and enhancement of community.
