Dear Parent or Guardian,
I extend my congratulations to the West Branch High School Lady Warrior Softball Team for their tremendous accomplishment in reaching the Ohio High School Association Final Four. The game as most of you know is scheduled to be played at Akron Firestone Stadium at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday May 31, 2018.
It goes unsaid that this is a monumental moment in the program’s history and the student athletes, coaches and parents who support the program should be beaming with Warrior Pride.
Unfortunately, the game time, in district conflicts and outdoor venue(weather concerns) do not lend to the closure of school or adjusted scheduling. With that in mind, students who wish to attend the game can do so at the high school level by riding the district provided spirit bus. Secondly, with parent permisson, students could attend by having parents/guardians write an excuse note for their attendance at the game.
Students at the middle school level or elementary level who wish to attend the game should follow the same procedures that they would if missing school at their parents request. A written note upon leaving or return is required.
We support the team in their efforts and wish them good luck! I hope that this information is helpful and that the community continues to support all of our programming. I look forward to a positive end of the school year.
Timothy Saxton, Superintendent
