As we approach the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, we are planning for the start of middle school athletic programs.

We will have a district-wide middle school coaches meeting during the second week of August. At that time we will discuss the safety protocols that need to be in place for middle school athletes as related to COVID 19. We must ensure that we have appropriate staff on each campus to monitor student wellness and safe protocols are in place for the safety of our middle school students. We look forward to welcoming middle school athletes on campus prior to the start of the school year. More information will follow after our coaches meeting the second week of August.
