Flag Football

To all,

Flag football for all divisions is cancelled for tomorrow, March 30, 2019. This is due to the weather forecast indicating 90% chance of rain in the morning.

We are also scheduled to be off on April 6 during Spring Break. We will pick up again on Saturday, April 13 at the regularly scheduled times.

We are making the decision earlier than we normally would in order to make sure students at Allendale and Strong can be informed before the end of their school days.

If you have any questions, please email:

Ian Striz - strizi@melnapschools.com


Derek Anderson - andersd@melnapschools.com

Thanks and we will see you next month!
