Appropriate social distancing should be followed during drop off and pick up times for all athletic activities and congregating of students should be avoided. Recommendations are:
- Athletes should be dropped off as close to the start of the practice or event as possible.
If they arrive early they should wait in their car until the start time.
- Upon ending of athletic activities, parents/guardians should wait in their cars to pick up/wait for their child.

- Can I still try out for a sport if I have one or more “F”s on my report card?
- Yes, you are still able to try out for any sport you are interested in. If you make the team, you will be placed on Academic Review Status (ARS).
