Due to extreme temperatures and heat index readings for tonight, Alton High School will be altering the Fall Sports Kick-off Night to more of a Fall Sports introduction, or “Meet and Greet” night. The Soccer and Football scrimmages will not occur, nor will the Marching 100 performance. All Fall Sports Teams will still be introduced. We have attached a revised schedule for these activities. We will still have athletic pictures taken as scheduled at the previous scheduled times and locations. The Girls Volleyball Team will still be able to scrimmage in the West Elementary Gymnasium at approximately 5:15pm. Parent Meetings can still be held as scheduled. Any questions, contact the AHS Athletic Office. Thank you.
Here is our plan:
Tonight (Friday, 8/22): Red & Gray Scrimmage
Parents please plan on staying for introductions and pictures that way no one is left waiting for a ride. We’re trying to make this quick and easy.
Arrive at West by 5:15pm. We will meet where the trailer usually sits. We will not need to bring horns.
5:40pm – arc up, introduce the band
6:00pm – file into the bleachers, take a picture for the Fall Sports Program
6:10pm – head home
Attire: black marching shoes, black socks, khaki shorts, red chutes & ladders show shirt.
Unfortunately we are not allowed to play when canceling due to heat. We’re just building anticipation for when everyone finally gets to see the show
Tomorrow (Saturday, 8/23): Alton Labor Day Parade
Arrive at Alton Middle School (front of Annex) at 9am
Parade step off is 10am
The parade route is up College, right on Washington, left on Edwards, left on Main and follow Main down to the Motivational Achievement Center. We will then break and walk back to AMS.
I’m hoping to be done by 11am – 11:30am at the latest.
Attire (CHANGE to previous info): black marching shoes, black socks, khaki shorts, red chutes & ladders show shirt.
Might have to do some laundry tonight, but we have to keep the kids as cool as we can.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
