Morning Mile opens at 7:20 and will close in enough time for students to check out and go to class on time. They must eat breakfast before participating and must remain respectful and responsible to continue participating. Students will earn a necklace and tokens by completing laps. Students will not be given replacement necklaces or tokens. Morning Mile will be closed if it is raining or if it is 41 degrees or lower. How many laps can you run this year?
