Athletics and Extracurricular Activities

As per current guidance, the District currently restricts and limits the use of school/district facilities to district or school sponsored extracurricular activities and groups. If any external community organizations are permitted to use school/district facilities, schools/districts must ensure such organizations follow State and locally developed guidance on health and safety protocols. All after-school and large group gatherings will remain restricted until further notice.

The District will continue to follow the guidance from New York State Public High School Athletic Association regarding “return to play” for interscholastic athletics.

The District will maximize the use of technology and online resources to create or continue some extracurricular activities that may not require person-to-person contact. Student organizations and booster groups will consider virtual options for extracurricular club meetings, elections, and other functions.

Additional Recommendations:

Access to Facilities- The District will explore opportunities to open District recreational facilities as soon as possible in accordance with state and local guidance.

Training and Fitness- Athletic coaches are encouraged to communicate with players to promote socially distanced off-season workout programs and readiness for return to play.

Clubs- Clubs and booster organizations such as PTA, Music, and Sports Boosters will continue to plan and organize fundraising events for the upcoming school year.
