Intramurals @ EMMS

Tue, 09/24/2019 - 2:40pm

EMMS is excited to announce our 2019-2020 Intramural options.

Sponsoring staff members will announce through EMMS morning broadcasts and afternoon announcements when the registration period opens and directing students to pick up a permission slip from the front office. All intramurals have limited space and students will be selected on a first come - first served basis. No advance permission will be accepted, families will need to wait until the official announcements for permission form pick-up.

EMMS does not provide transportation for intramurals and asks that parents pay close attention to the end time. Too many late pick-ups may result in student being removed from intramural.
