News Alert for 8/16/2022

Announcing Middle School Athletics

The following message was sent August 16, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. to all Middle School families with an email in our mass communication system:

Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) is excited to announce the start of athletics at our middle schools for the 2022-2023 school year. All HCPS middle schools will offer boys and girls basketball in the winter and boys and girls soccer in the spring.

Middle school athletics will be modeled after the athletics program in our high schools.  It will be student-centered and intended to educate students through participation in Interscholastic Athletics. Participation in middle school athletics requires students to be academically eligible each quarter moving forward. Academic eligibility means students will be required to have all passing grades on their quarterly report card. 

Stay tuned for more details. You will also receive information about tryouts and practices directly from your middle school. 

Thank you,

Mike O’Brien

Executive Director of Middle and High School Performance

Deborah Basler

Supervisor of Interscholastic Athletics
