To My Wolf Pack Class of 2020 - We could have never foreseen the challenges that so dramatically changed the ending to our school year, and I am sorry for the things you have missed and the pain you have endured.  Through this great challenge I believe each one of you have displayed great character and will be the leaders we so need in this world today.  I love each and every one of you, and pray only the best for you as we send you on from Parke Heritage.  You will forever be part of, and will always have a home with, your Wolf Pack Family.
Mr. Ashley

FALL ATHLETIC INFORMATION
Please read the information below and watch the video from PHHS athletic director Mr. Rich Schelsky, which provides schedules and guidlelines for fall athletic information.
Welcome back to PH Athletics! Below you will find guidelines that everyone must follow as we try to get back to somewhat normal procedures during this Pandemic. It is our hope as the PH Athletic Department that we provide all of our athletes and coaches the best experience possible while also maintaining the safest environment possible. We will try to get through all of this the best we can. Please be patient and understanding with some of the restrictions that have been set. They are put in place for the health and safety of our athletes and coaches. Our goal is to get back to as close to normal as possible during this different and unique time in our world.
Below are the conditioning schedules for July:
Boys Weights/Conditioning: M, T, W, Th 5:30-7:30 in PHHS weight room.
Girls Weights/Conditioning: M, T, W, Th 5:00-6:00 in PHMS (Parke Heritage Middle School) weight room.
Please contact your sport specific coach for your sport specific workout dates/times.
Below are the phases that the Indiana DOE and the IHSAA have set up for a return to high school athletics. I have met with all of our coaches about all of these guidelines and they are ready to go forward with the month of July as set forth by our two governing bodies and the NCP school corporation. We will all do our best to keep our athletes and coaches healthy and safe so that we can continue to move forward to the start of the school year and fall sports.
