Cross Country Information

Cross Country Race 2021

Dear Parents,

We have been working on endurance running in PE class and your child has shown an interest in participating in cross country.  On Wednesday, October 20th (rain date Wed. Oct 27th) we have been invited to a cross country race at Chaplin Elementary School and we would love it if your child or children signed up.

We plan to leave SES at 2:45 and arrive at Chaplin about 3:15.   We will meet behind the school and walk the course.  The course is 1 mile which is basically 2 laps around the school.  If you want to practice at Chaplin school the course is as follows:  Start behind school near the playscape with your back to the baseball field.  Run forward keeping the school on your right and as you come to the school driveway cross to the other side and follow it all the way to the baseball field.  Go inside the baseball field fence area and follow the fence line to the exit in the fence which will bring you back to where you started.  For the race students will jog this twice.

Boys and girls run separate races, we anticipate the first race to begin about 3:45.   The second race should start around 4:10.  At this time I do not know which group will run first.  At the completion of the races students are allowed to leave with parents (or the person a parent allows the student to travel with) ONLY if the student has brought in a signed note signed by a parent stating that the child will be going home after the race with whomever.  The note needs to be turned into the office by the latest the morning of the race, Oct. 20th.  Without that note your child will need to take the bus back to Scotland School.  The entire event should be done by 4:30 so if you were unable to attend please plan to pick up your child at 4:45.  For your child’s safety please sign your child out with Ms. Schenck prior to taking them home.

What do you need to do to sign up?  Please complete in detail the attached permission form Please return paperwork by Friday, October 14th.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me with any questions.  My email address is or school phone 860-423-0064. 

Ms. Schenck
