GENERAL

There is no school provided transportation for this meet, we plan on having kids walk over from Rio (.5 Miles) after school. There is a group of approximately 25 boys who will need an early dismissal. We have attached the early dismissal list below in the competition roster, due to the fact that we wish to have our athletes miss as little school as possible we will have 2 separate groups of early dismissals. Team parent, Jorge Prieto, will meet the early dismissal groups at the flagpole and walk them over to the Jesuit Track. There will be a tent set up in bleachers for athletes and parents to be together and cheer on the team. Look for the Rio Raiders tent!

PARKING

Jesuit gets out of school at 3 PM so any time before 3:30 PM we would ask that you do not try to park on the campus as all spots are occupied by students. The athletes will be walking over from Rio, parking at the Rio Americano lot and walking over might be easiest for parents. If you wish to park at Jesuit, please park and drop off before 3:30 PM at the south entrance via American River Drive (Google Maps – 4739 American River Dr. Carmichael CA, 95608).
