As you are aware, there has been much ongoing discussion as to whether or not middle school extramural sports will be offered this year. Based in large part on our experiences with high school sports, a decision has been made to suspend the play between middle schools this school year. One of the primary reasons for this decision has been that even with proactive measures at the high school level, many of our student-athletes have been required to self-quarantine and miss instructional time. Additionally, the challenges at a middle school are further compounded by the lack of athletic facilities and coaching personnel necessary for appropriate social distancing and supervision. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we have worked to determine what is in the best interest of our students, staff members and community during these unprecedented times.
