The IDPH has recently updated its guidance regarding sports. It has been decided that we will not resume sports at this time. This is true of all extracurricular activities including drama, chess club, band, cheerleading, and afterschool art. This decision was made based on many factors such as space, carpool restrictions, mixing students, inviting others into our building, contact tracing, cleaning protocol, and more.
I know how important sports are not only to your child but the greater community as well. Please know that my own children participated in sports throughout grade school, high school, and two were collegiate varsity swimmers and I understand your disappointment.
Many of our Catholic Schools in the area are not participating in sports at this time. However, there are a few schools that have chosen to participate in girls' volleyball as that is the only sport that has been approved thus far by the Diocese of Joliet.
