Dear Grapevine, I have asked multiple times. And unfortunately I’m not surprised you are choosing to ignore my inquiry. Again, what type of training do varsity level coaches undergo, if any, to ensure professional and ETHICAL behavior. Please forward to AD as necessary. There clearly is overwhelming concern with pay to play type of behavior across many sports here. Thank you.

It is extremely difficult to find the sports game schedules online. It appears that each sport updates their own calendars on their respective websites, twitter feeds, etc. and some are updated well and others have no information for the current season listed. It would be great if the athletic department could provide an updated online calendar for all sports either online or on Twitter.

A.  We understand your concern.  Schedules can be found by clicking on the link below or the link on our web site.  The Suburban Council is moving to a new improved system that will be much more user friendly. http://163.153.20.139/sportspak/oecgi3.exe/O4W_SPAKONLINE_HOME

There has to be a formal required presentation to all students grade 9-12, telling them about the concerns and health risks of vaping. Even if this information is taught in health class, not everyone has taken the class yet to be aware. If students are more educated, they may be less inclined to vape.

A.  We did a presentation for parents. We had a presentation for all of the 9th grade that touched on vaping and other drug use. It is also covered in the HS Health curriculum.

Would it be possible to take a math course over the summer (i.e. Algebra I), take the summer regents, and then take the next math course the incoming school year (i.e. Geometry)? Thanks.
