While considering all the circumstances with starting the school year, district leadership, in collaboration with middle and K-8 building leaders, have made the decision to delay the start of ALL middle school sports. Please understand, we are not canceling sports for the year. We are simply delaying the start, to focus on the academic start of the year.
When will sports start? Because of the rapidly changing circumstances we face, we will not set a firm date at this time. We will continue to monitor all of the related factors and make the decision to begin in plenty of time for us to have a clear plan and communicate that plan with all stakeholders. As a result of these changes, it may shorten the seasons, the number of contests we can hold, and when sports will be placed into the calendar. By waiting, we also hope that we will be able to allow more spectators at events.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging circumstances. We will periodically update you as we continue to evaluate the situation.
