Athletes: practices postponed on eclipse day

Posted on: July 17, 2017

With increasing talk of the expected heavy traffic and congestion in the mid-valley as a result of the August 21 eclipse, we have decided to close all athletic facilities at the school and suspend all athletic practices, weight training, or open gym sessions affiliated with West Albany High School until after 3:00pm on August 21.

Beginning at 3:00pm you may resume your regular practice schedules on a non-mandatory basis.

This is a rare event so please encourage your athetes to take the time to safely view the eclipse wth friends and family.

Please be sure to contact me if you have any questions.
