athletics update (1/10/2022)

Covid-19 Update for Indoor Athletics:
With the surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the area, fueled by the highly contagious Omicron variant, the District has expanded safety protocols for all indoor athletic activities to ensure our student athletes, coaches and support staff are moving forward in the safest environments possible. The extra precautions will remain in place through Feb. 4, 2022, when the District will reevaluate the situation with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local and state public health agencies.
 
Indoor Athletics Guidance:
• 4 paid tickets per player for household members and no other spectators for indoor sports events
• Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are required for all spectators and observers. They must also socially distance at home events
• All COVID-19 testing will continue for our student athletes (every Wednesday)
 
While these are challenging times for all of us, the health and safety of our students and staff remain our highest priority. By limiting fans at indoor athletic events, we’re limiting the exposure and the potential spread of the virus in our schools. With limited spectators at indoor events, we will livestream games utilizing our existing contracts so extended family members and fans can watch the games from home.
 
The District continues to work closely with local and public health officials and will provide you with any updates as they become available.
