Dear Parents/Guardian and Athletes,

If any student athlete is interested in purchasing a varsity jacket for the 20-21 SY, please contact East Coast Customs in Sayreville at (732) 390-8238 or Leisure Sporting Goods in Iselin at (732) 283-3113. Athletes are to purchase varsity jackets directly from the vendor as South Amboy School District is not affiliated with these vendors.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Athletes,

The fall registration deadline for middle school boys and girls soccer will be closed after today, Sept. 25th. I am thankful for those that have registered, however; we are still in need of more athletes for both teams.  

Know that if we do not have enough players to field a boys and girls team, we will not be able to have a season, thus having to cancel and default to a club program. We have great ability and talent to have a successful program. Let's make this happen!

Dear Parents/Guardian and Athletics,

I would like to thank everyone for their participation in fall athletics. Currently, we have enough girls to field a varsity soccer team. As a result, I have been:

1. Scheduling games with other schools
2. Obtaining field permits
3. Scheduling athletic trainers
4. Scheduling transportation 
5. Scheduling officials

As of today, the coach informed me that 5 girls left the team due to various reasons. Know that if we continue to lose girls, we will not be able to have a season, thus; having to cancel and default to a club program. We have great ability and talent to have a successful program. Let's make this happen!

Dear Parents/Guardians and Athletes,

This a reminder for those interested in fall sports to register as soon as possible. Please see the "Athletic Registration" tab for application details. Here is the link for the tab: http://mhs.sapublicschools.com/athletics/athletic_registration

We are in need of athletes for all fall sports. Students registering for a sport late can impact the number of athletes needed to have a sports program/team this fall. If we do not have enough interest, we cannot support the athletic activity.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Athletes,

Our school physician, Dr. McKenna, will be conducting sport physicals for the 20-21 school year. Physicals will take place at South Amboy MHS in Nurse Houman's Office during the following dates and times:

Wednesday August 12, 2020 from 2:30 - 4:30 pm
Wednesday August 26, 2020 from 2:30 - 4:30 pm.

There will be a few changes this year due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We will be following appropriate CDC recommendations, which include social distancing, face coverings, temperature checks and health screening. The exam room must be disinfected after each student's physical. Our compliance with all CDC recommendations will require additional time. Therefore, we must limit the number of students to a maximum of 6 per hour (or 12 per day) and require all students to pre-register by emailing Nurse Housman at chousman@sapublicschools.com for the athletic physicals. We cannot accept any "walk-ins."

Due to the limited number of students who can be seen by Dr. McKenna we strongly recommend that students who have a regular family doctor/pediatrician see their current provider. In this way, priority can be given to students who do not have medical insurance or who are experiencing financial hardship.

In the event that fall athletics are cancelled, we will keep these dates for winter and spring sports.

If you have any further questions please email Mr. Zalocki at fzalocki@sapublicschools.com or Nurse Housman at chousman@sapublicschools.com

Best,

Mr. Zalocki, VP/AD
