The parent must also sign indicating they will accept all responsibility if their child or any other student becomes ill because of misuse of the medication. All other policies concerning possession of a controlled substance apply.

No medication will be dispensed from the clinic unless a completed form is on file.
    • Medication must be in its original container, properly labeled with the name of the drug, student’s name, and dosage, time of administering, physician, and the current date.
    • Medication may be given legally only by school personnel who have been trained by a registered nurse.

Girls and Boys Inter-Scholastic Basketball is currently scheduled to take place in January and February.   Optional pre-season workouts will take place in November and December.  Girls will practice from 3:30-5:30 on Mondays and Fridays (no practice on 11/20, some Wednesday practices may be added), and boys will practice from 3:30-5:15 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Due to COVID, spectators will not be allowed at practices.
 
We will not be charging for pre-season workouts, but in order for students to participate, they must have a current physical and have completed the three required forms under “Sports Registration” on the Legacy Academy website.  To protect our athletes and Legacy Academy, there will be no exceptions to this requirement.  
Please watch the Legacy Ledger, the Athletic Calendar, and the Basketball page on the Legacy website for information on practice changes and plans for the season.   Please also look for an email to sign up for TeamSnap if your athlete has all of their forms and physical in.  Email our Athletic Director, Kim Kieca (kim.kieca@legacyk8.org) with any questions.
