    NEWS and UPDATES: 

    (updated 4/7/20) The Idaho state Department of Education met 4/6/20 and extended the "soft closure" of Idaho schools through the end of the 19-20 school year. With that, Blaine Co. School District will remain under the "soft closure" for the remainder of the 19-20 school year triggering the cancelation of our spring sports.

    (updated 4/1/20) On behalf of WRMS, we hope this update finds you and yours well. WRMS spring sports are suspended until at least April 20th. WRMS will continue to monitor and align with any future recommendations/orders that come from Blaine Co. School District, Idaho Department of Education, and Governor Little's office. Check in with our Spring sport webpage and the WRMS athletics webpage for further updates. 

    (updated 3/18/20) Per the directive of BCSD, all spring sports are postponed until at least April 6th. This means no organization of practices or workouts by BCSD coaches that promote group gatherings. Individual workouts are recommended. District fields and buildings are off limits until April 6th as well.

    (updated 8/22/19) For the 19-20 school year the activity bus will depart WRMS @ 5:30pm beginning Monday, 9/26/19. There will be no north valley activity bus.  Moutain Rides offers transportation north Mountain Rides

    Athletic Grade checks:

    On THURSDAY of each week, administration will run a grade report for all students who are taking part in athletics. The Athletic Director and coaches will be notified about student-athletes earning a D or an F in any class on TUESDAY. The first time students will be placed on probation for the duration of the season. The second time a student receives a D or F, they will not be eligible to participate in the next competition and will be unable to participate until their grades have improved to C-'s or above in all of their classes. Some students may require special consideration or individualized arrangements, and the Athletic Director may take these considerations into account when making the final determination about an individual student’s eligibility.
