Announcements and Important Events
Middle School Weekly Athletic Schedule
It is unfortunate that we will not be able to complete our MS girls basketball season, as all indoor activities are on pause while we shift to virtual learning at IPS.
It was great to see everyone at the parent meeting for MS Track Friday night!!! Parents if you did not make it to the parent meeting, make sure you arrive at practice on Monday ready to review all the information covered and complete the necessary COVID documentation (Code of Conduct and Covid Consent see links below).
Our first practice for EVERYONE (not just girls, EVERYONE) is Monday, April 19th from 3:00-5:00pm outside of Watt Auditorium. You will get Antigen tested BEFORE you are allowed to practice. It is best for parents to plan on waiting the 15 minutes for test results before leaving. We will be practicing at the middle school the entire first week of practice.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday @ 3!!!!!!!!!!
You can go to Ioniaathletics.org for results from all contests.
Per the Ionia County Health Department spectators are limited at all sporting events. Some events may have a 4 guests per athlete limit while others will be based on facility capacity. All spectators must continue to wear masks at all contests.
Due to limited spectators all IMS events are being treated like MHSAA tournament contests with no passes being accepted and all spectators will have to pay $3.00 to enter.
