West Catholic Moves to New Leadership Model

Date:  October 23, 2020

I am happy to announce the culmination of significant work in transitioning West Catholic from a principal/CEO model to the president/principal model. Please read this letter explaining the change. In it, you will find a link to brief job descriptions for the president, principal and dean of students. I hope this provides clarity. During the past couple of years, I know there has been some confusion as to roles, especially between Tony Fischer and myself.

God bless,

Cynthia Kneibel | President/CEO

physicals

For the 2020-21 school year, the MHSAA pre-participation sports physical requirement will be waived for students in any grade who received a valid physical for sports during the 2019-20 school year (one completed on or after April 15, 2019). These students and their parents/guardians will be required to complete the two-page MHSAA Sports Health Questionnaire. These must be signed by the student and parent/guardian and kept on file in the school.

Students who did not receive a sports physical during the 2019-20 school year or later must have a valid physical examination form on file. If a student is discovered to have participated without a valid physical on file, the student shall not be eligible to participate until a valid physical is on file. This includes tryouts for any sport.
