Announcements and Important Events
Freedom Eagles Athletes and Parents, 6/15/2020
We hope that everyone is staying healthy during this very difficult time. This has certainly been a trying month or so and please know how badly we miss seeing all of our student athletes competing this spring. We are all disappointed for how this school year and spring sports season has ended for everyone, particularly our seniors.
We are hoping to address a lot of the frequently asked questions we’ve been receiving these last few weeks. Please understand that we still don’t have the answers to all your questions, but we will let you know as soon as more information becomes available.
1. SPRING SPORTS ATHLETIC FEE REIMBURSEMENT: LCPS will be reimbursing the $150 athletic fee. Online reimbursement has been returned to online accounts. It will be listed as OSMS on statements. Checks are being sent by LCPS and will hopefully be returned by July 1. If you have questions please contact myself, or the Freedom HS bookkeeper, Hope Casserly, .
2. PICK-UP OF EQUIPMENT/GEAR FROM YOUR ATHLETIC LOCKERS and Spring Photos: Will need to be by appointment. --- Call 703-957-4300
3. UNIFORM RETURN/EQUIPMENT RETURN: Many of our spring athletes have returned their uniforms and equipment. We thank you for your assistance during the process. If you have not returned your uniform/equipment your Coach will be following up with you. Equipment can be dropped off in main office. If items are not returned, Freedom HS will send athletes a deficiency for the missing items.
4. VHSL ATHLETICS/RETURN TO SPORTS—Last week it was announced by VHSL is allowing high school athletics to return AFTER school districts submit plans to the Virginia Department of Education with health strategies. The VDOE will approve the plan, and then LCPS will implement strategies. We anticipate it may take a few weeks before we have information about a formal plan. For now, we’re certainly hopeful that we can resume summer optional practices and we can begin fall sports on August 3rd. The athletic department and Coaches will communicate immediately when we have significant updates. Thank you for everyone’s patience.
5. 2020-2021 Registration is OPEN!!
Thank you again for your patience and continued support. We will continue to provide information as it becomes available to us. Stay healthy!
