Fall Sports Info

Beverly Athletics is offering intramural cross country and field hockey (gr 7 & 8 only) leagues this fall at the middle school, giving student athletes an opportunity to participate in a sport right on their own campus.

There is no user fee collected for the middle school fall season, but athletes are still required to have registered on the BHS Athletics website. In addition, all student-athletes participating must have an IN-PERSON physical within the last 13 months (must be dated 8/21/19 or later) on file with the athletic office. The physical can be uploaded to RSCHOOLTODAY with the registration or the physical can be emailed to mmorency@beverlyschools.org. Note that despite the pandemic, the Massachusetts DPH will NOT accept physicals via telehealth for fall sports participation.

If you have questions about registration, please direct them to the BHS Athletics office, and not to the coaches, who will be in touch with registrants soon about logistics and practices, currently planned to begin the week of October 5.

Don't Miss Important Emails

We want to be sure you don't miss any important emails! Our administrators often send emails from the Aspen system, which allows them to select certain grade levels, for example. Unfortunately, these emails occasionally land in people's spam/junk boxes.

Please check for emails coming from aspen-sysadmin@myfollett.com (triggered from our Aspen student info system) and email@blackboard.com (triggered from our Blackboard communication system). 

Check your email settings to sort these correctly so you don't miss any critical messages during this unprecedented school year.

Grade 7 & 8 Info - Link Corrected

This information was in Homeward Bound yesterday but the link may not have worked for you. Sorry! Let's try this again...

Our grade 7 and 8 Cohort A Students (Mondays & Thursdays), will have their first in-person day on Thursday, October 1st. Cohort B Students (Tuesdays & Fridays) will have their first in-person day on Tuesday, September 29th. 

Families whose students will be attending school in person next week should have received an email yesterday from Principal Lisa Oliver. You can also view the letter online. It includes information about:
  • What to do if you did not receive info about your child's cohort group
  • Schedules
  • Daily logistics
  • Important information from our health office
  • Arrival and dismissal
  • What students should bring each day
