The Kent School District is addressing necessary scheduling challenges for the upcoming middle school sports seasons. Like other school districts in the region, we are experiencing a shortage of bus drivers which impacts our ability to hold both practices and contests with the same schedule we have used in the past. So that we can make the best use of the resources available, keep students in class as long as possible, take advantage of our new district schedule, and continue our full standard of sports offerings, the following scheduling adjustments are necessary: Season 4 begins on Monday, April 16th and must now include Girls and Boys Soccer along with Track & Field. The Girls Soccer matches will be played on Mondays and Thursdays starting Thursday, May 3 while the Boys Soccer matches will play on Tuesdays and Fridays starting Friday, May 4th. Soccer matches will be doubleheaders with the varsity starting at 3:45 and the 7th grade match to follow. Track & Field meets will be scheduled weekly on Thursdays after school. Season 4 student-athletes will not practice or compete on Early Release Wednesdays and will be released at 1:10 to go home. We recognize that these necessary adjustments will impact many participants in our system and appreciate the flexibility of our student-athletes, families, coaches, support staff, and communities as we work to maintain robust athletic programs in our schools.
Monday is PJ day. Tuesday is Mix it up day. Wednesday is Twin day. Thursday is College day. Friday is Pink Out! $2 for song requests @ lunch on Tuesday and Thursday. If your lunch can raise $50 you can have a phone Friday. All money raised goes to breast cancer research.

Supervision of student athletes will be provided between the early release time and regular practice and event schedules.
