Bus Transportation to Practice:

  • If the student’s assigned after school bus stops at Holmen High School – they should ride their assigned after school bus to HHS and get off of the bus at HHS
  • If the student’s assigned after school bus does not stop at HHS (Bus #) or if the student does not have an assigned after school bus they will ride bus #TBD  to the high school (the bus drivers name is TBD, and the bus is parked in stall #TBD at HMS) 
  • All wrestlers should sit at the very front of the bus so that they can exit their bus at HHS before the high school students begin to get on the bus.
  • Wrestlers are not allowed to walk from HMS to HHS (they must be transported by a school bus)
  • For the first week of practice, Coach Eggerichs , Coach Needham, or Coach Barsness will meet the wrestlers when they exit their bus at HHS by the Flag Poles near the bus drop off / pick up area.
