Reminder - Running Club:  If you were unable to make last week's meeting, please click here to download a brief summary of what was discussed, including the Permission and Waiver form that needs to be completed and returned for each child that is participating.

Start time: The middle school has requested that we do not start before 8:20am because of the congestion already present with middle school drop-off. Please know that if you arrive prior to 8:20, there will be a wait to get into the parking lot and to drop-off kids. The congestion decreases significantly after 8:20.

Weather: Also, just a reminder, as we move into the colder months, please note that CCPS policy is to limit outside activity if the temperature is less than 32 degrees.  We will continue to post updates to the RESPTA website and Facebook by 7:30am Wednesday mornings to indicate if there is a change, but the overall rule should be if it is less than 32 degrees at 7am the morning of, Running Club is cancelled for the day. Please check the website and/or Facebook for updates regarding Wednesday's session in the event of low temperature or inclement weather.
