Important Middle School Football Information

**Cloverleaf Middle School Football  – 2020**

Thank you for your patients as the coaching staff has been coordinating with the school and assessing the COVID-19 guidelines so we can kick off our 2020 MS Football season in a safe and effective manner.  We will be starting Phase I of summer workouts tentatively beginning June 10, 2020.   In order to get all parents and athletes informed of upcoming training dates/times as soon as possible  – the coaching staff needs to gather all interested players contact information as soon as possible (even if you are not 100% sure you can commit to summer training – please still register so we can keep you informed).

Any incoming 7th and 8th grade students interested in playing middle school football for the 2020-21 school year, please email the following information to Coach Price at Lance.Price@Cloverleaflocal.org :

Student Name

Grade (for fall of 2020)

Parent(s) name, phone number and email address

Also please sign up for remind app by texting @9kfead 

We are excited to get our athletes back out on the field but need to ensure we are following the standards set by the OHSAA and Ohio Department of Health.  We will be getting more detail information to all parent/athletes (through google classroom and remind) but here is a brief summary of what to expect in the coming weeks as we kick off Phase I of CMS football training:

  • Tentative training days with be Mondays and Wednesday  – 2 sessions, running from 6-7 OR 7-8pm.
  • Athletes will sign up for one of the time slot sessions and you will NOT be able to change during Phase I – to limit exposure and crossing of athletes.
  • Athletes will be assigned to PODs (based on time slots) to a maximum of 9 athletes per POD. 
  • Masks will be required to be worn by everyone when not actively training.  No mask—you will not be permitted in the practice area.
  • No use of locker rooms – come and go in same clothes.
  • We will NOT provide any water.  You must provide your own water bottles clearly marked with the athlete’s name.
  • Athletes must self-assess their medical condition prior to coming to practice.  Any symptoms of illness you are NOT to come to practice. 
  • Coaches will check-in athletes when they arrive and will ask them a series of questions related to their medical condition (self-assessment).
  • Entry and exiting the practice fields will be controlled – to maintain proper social distancing.  There will be NO congregating by parents or athletes before or after practice.  **your rides must be on time.  No exceptions.
  • We will be social distancing during all training/conditioning drills.

We ask for your continued patients as we work through implementing the required guidelines to keep everyone safe.  The coaching staff understand that these are unique times for everyone and know without a doubt that all of our commitment and discipline will pay off on the field this fall! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.  Go Colts!!


Parents if you have not collected your child’s personal items from the school by the end of today (May 29th) they will be discarded.

For any remaining school items that have not been returned (Chromebooks, textbooks,library, books, instruments, etc…) fees will be assessed to your child’s account. To avoid the added fees please reach out to the school to make accommodations to drop items off as soon as possible.

Thank you for all you have done over the past 9 weeks to support your child and our school.

Enjoy your summer!

Thank You Mrs. Baughman for your Years of Service to Cloverleaf

Meet Kathryn Baughman, she is a sixth grade Language Arts teacher.  She has been with Cloverleaf for 32 years. She is married with three daughters and one son-in-law and she is a 4th generation English teacher in her  family.  She loves working at Cloverleaf because of the staff and students.  Kathryn chose education, because she wanted to teach since she was in the second grade.  

As Mrs. Baughman heads into retirement at the end of the school year, we want to say thank you for your commitment to Cloverleaf School. The staff and students of CMS are so sad for Cloverleaf Middle School but so happy for you! We will miss your kind smile and conversations in the hallway each day.  Congratulations! 

Incoming 6th Grade Students, Welcome to CMS!

The middle school staff is eager to get to welcome the incoming 6th graders for the 2020-2021 school year.  We know transitions can be difficult.  With that in mind, both middle school and elementary staff members have participated in several meetings over the past couple of weeks to get to know the students.  The discussions have been important in allowing middle school teachers, counselors, and administrators to start building positive relationships with the students.  

During typical times, there would be several opportunities for incoming 6th-grade students and families to visit the building and ask questions about the middle school. Unfortunately, we are not able to conduct the visits this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  

One thing you will come to learn about the middle staff is that we love a challenge!  So, we have changed our approach to ensure we can still get to know you, answer your questions, and have you see the building.

We are holding Zoom meetings with students and parents to say hello, and allow you to place a face with a name.  These meetings also give students and parents the opportunity to get their questions answered.  Our school counselor, Mrs. Esakov, will also be conducting a building tour through a video.  That video will be shared soon…..Stay tuned for that! 

We are very excited to welcome all of you to the middle school.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to meeting you in the fall.  Take care!
