One more thing!

This system does not give you a notification if there are changes.

You will still want to sign up for email updates. You will get an email each Friday, to let you know the following week's calendar has been double-checked and confirmed.

If there are changes to a particular week's calendar after that week has begun, you will get additional emails with an alert.

Sign up for instant updates to learn about cancellations and changes as they are announced.

Concussion policies

Gordon is committed to raising awareness about the seriousness of concussions. Information on concussions for both parents and players, as well as Gordon's official policy on concussions, is linked below.

Prior to the athletics season, Gordon coaches complete an online concussion training program. Throughout the season, they are provided with additional support as well as head injury protocols by the school nurse. 
 

Please don't hesitate to contact Kristen Fraza, Athletic Director, or the school nurse Sandy Horton with any questions.
