Good evening, colleagues.
We want to clarify a previously reported District response regarding student participation in extracurricular activities and athletics in the fall. We are exploring possible options for students enrolled in virtual learning to participate in extracurricular activities, such as clubs and student organizations. We understand the value of these programs to the total learning experience, and we are still determining which activities can be offered, staff permitting, with limited in-person interaction. However, the District has not yet resumed full athletic participation nor made any decisions about the start of the fall sports season. Only individual conditioning has been taking place this summer for student athletes, but no organized team activities. We will continue to monitor guidance from local and state health and athletic officials and support our schools in developing sport-specific contingency plans. Student athletes, including those enrolled in both in-school and virtual learning, may continue with individual conditioning at the direction of their coaches. Further guidance will be shared with families once a final decision is made on resuming athletic activities District-wide.
