Dear Middle and High School Athletes and Their Families,
In order to provide our athletes with ample time to meet the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for high-risk winter sports (volleyball, basketball, cheer), we are amending the deadlines for vaccination. All athletes participating in high-risk winter sports now must receive their first COVID-19 dose no later than November 1, 2021 in order to participate. Athletes who have received only one dose will be permitted to attend practices but will not be permitted to scrimmage or play competitively with other teams until they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after receiving their second dose of the vaccine). Athletes must receive their second dose no later than November 26, 2021 to remain on the team. With these measures in place, we hope to provide as many athletes as possible the opportunity to participate in winter sports safely and with minimal disruption to their season.
Sal DeAngelo, Superintendent
