Cimarron High School is …
a 3A high school in southwest Kansas on Highway 50 between Dodge City and Garden City. We belong to the Hi-Plains League and our mascot is the Bluejay.
In cooperation with family, community, and students, the mission of USD 102 is to strive for excellence
by preparing students to be responsible, productive citizens in a challenging society.
From David Ediger
Welcome to another year of Bluejay Athletics! We are excited about the possibilities of the new year. This year our parent meetings will be conducted by each individual coach. I have given them information in this letter to give to each of you.
Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions concerning the information in this letter.

1. All students must ride to events in school sponsored transportation. The ride home is up to each individual coach. However, if the coach allows a student to sign out, only the parent or legal guardian may sign them out and take them. Neighbors, grandparents, aunts, etc. are not allowed to sign out and take a student.
2. Supplemental insurance is offered thru the same company that provides our mid-level catastrophic insurance. Basically, if your child gets hurt, you (or your insurance company) is responsible for the first $9999. That is where this optional insurance comes in and helps. The school’s insurance will cover from $10,000 - $24,999. If the bills go above $25,000 the KSHSAA insurance helps out. Please see the HS for a form. This insurance can be used along side yours and is very affordable. You may purchase football only insurance if you choose to.
3. We understand that there may be a time when you feel the need to talk to a coach about a situation that may arise. We have a 48 hour rule here at USD 102. If you need to visit with a coach, you may call the next day and set up an appointment. It is never OK to approach a coach after the event. Nothing good comes from an immediate confrontation after an event. Finding a solution to a problem comes when people can sit down and discuss the situation rationally. Please be aware that your child will need to be present in the meeting. We won’t hold meetings without the student involved. Of course, if it is a situation where you just need to give the coach information he or she may need to know to help understand why the child is feeling the way they are, to discuss a medical condition or other types of situations, then the child will not be required to be at the meeting.
4. Once again I will be using Twitter to keep people up-to-date on scores/results as they are happening. If I am not at an event, I typically have someone texting me with updates and I try and get them out as they come in.
5. If anyone would like to work at an event and earn a pass for the year, please contact me at the HS. I am always looking for people to take gate, line judge, etc.
6. Lastly and probably most importantly! If we want our students to be successful, we must ALL work together. As the legendary Coach John Wooden once said: “Ten strong horses could not pull an empty baby carriage if they worked independently of each other.” Even though we all don’t agree all of the time, we must keep in mind that we are all Bluejays and want the same thing – for each student-athlete to be successful. The only way to accomplish that is working together!
