EVERY RUNNER & PARENT should subscribe to the LHS Cross-Country newsletter. The newsletter will keep you informed of upcoming meets, off-site training, etc. The newsletter is sent regularly during the season for large, detailed information blasts.
READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU COMPLETE THE FORM
Runners will need their t-shirt size, their graduation year (for example, 2020) parent's cell phone number(s), address, and their cell number, if applicable. Fill in ALL fields.
If parents have different e-mail addresses each parent will need to complete the form for each e-mail address. Choose the e-mail address you check often, but won't mind getting weekly (or more) e-mails. (During race season you will get the regular newsletter plus a separate e-mail with race information and/or spaghetti dinner details.) When signing up your e-mail address only includes your runner's name, your name (spouse's name if different last name), your cell number, address, and that you are a parent. For all other information (t-shirt size, spouse's info, etc.) don't complete the fields if not required or put in 000-000-0000 in required phone number fields and N/A in text required fields.
Click the button below, complete the form in its entirety (including whether you are a runner, parent, or alum), AND then look for an e-mail within an hour to complete the process. If you do not get an e-mail within the hour something went wrong and you are not signed up.
We use the GroupMe app for direct and quick communication between runners, coaches and parents. There are 2 groups to join:
Runners get real-time information from captains and coaches about practices, meets and events. If they will be absent or have a question, they should direct message the appropriate senior captain in GroupMe. To join the LHS XC Runner Group Me ask Drew to add you.
Parents get real-time information from the booster club and coaches about practices, meets and events. This is NOT a forum for coaches to answer questions. All questions should follow the protocol below. To join the LHS XC Parent Group Me contact Emily Mason at email@example.com.
As we build leadership skills among our students, we have established a protocol for communication:
Runners --> Captains --> Coaches
Coaches --> Captains --> Runners
Parents --> Newsletter and Website // If questions still remain, their runner should contact a captain.
The LHS Cross-Country program has 3 main communication methods: this website, a periodic newsletter and GroupMe. It is important for you to regularly check all 3 sources for information throughout the season.
If you decide to UNSUBSCRIBE to the newsletter the communications person CAN NOT add you back on the list manually. You will need to complete the form again to get back on the list. If you have any problems or questions contact Whitney Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org
