Hello athletes, parents, and guardians,

- Season 4: Soccer/Wrestling
As a reminder, all sports are open to students grades 6th – 8th with the following exceptions:
- Football, 7th and 8th grade only
- Wrestling 4th – 8th grades
This year, due to COVID-19, the AIA is allowing all returning athletes who have a physical from the 2019-2020 school year on file in registermyathlete.com to use the same physical for the upcoming 2020-221 school year. If you played a sport last year in FUSD you may use the same physical this year. However, if you did not play a sport, did not have a physical during the 2019-2020 school year, or are new to our district, you will need to get one before tryouts begin.
We are excited for an amazing year! If you have any questions please contact your site athletic director.

CHILDCARE OPTIONS FOR FUSD FAMILIES
The Florence Unified School District welcomes all families to enroll students in their local school. As a public school system, the district provides instruction and support for students in kindergarten through grade 12 during regular school hours.
However, because many families require childcare options before and after the school day the district has contracted with a childcare provider called Right At School to offer these services. Providing more options for families has been an interest of the school board and district administration.
Right At School curriculum features hands-on learning, multi-sensory activities, child-driven projects, daily fitness, team building, and leadership development.
