Gym Sessions Delayed

As you are all aware we find ourselves in somewhat uncharted waters pertaining to an ongoing pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus. As things stand now, all school boards have closed their schools for the rest of this month. As such gym sessions must be canceled as there is no gym availability until April 11th.

At this time we plan to reconvene in the gym on April 11th at Chippewa High School.

However it is important that things can change quickly in situations like this one, so please monitor for further updates as things change, hopefully for the better.

We take the health and safety of all Bulldogs family members very seriously and as a result, we have prepared some important information for you to please read and share with players and family members.
