Athletic Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

Parents and student athletes,

The Athletic Department wishes to clarify our COVID-19 policies and policies adopted by our Piedmont Triad Athletic Conference. These expectations are in place for all practices and competition with other schools.  
 
As a school, athletic department, team, and conference, we all need to work to support these policies to help ensure that we can continue to participate in athletics.

    - All athletes waiting on the sidelines or done with competition must be in a mask.
    - No sharing of masks.
  • Q: Masks for Coaches?

    - Coaches are to remain in a mask/face covering at all times. 
    - If a coach needs to have clear long distance communication across a field, intermittent pulling down of a mask to communicate over longer distances could be permitted as long as the coach is significantly distant from others around them when they are "yelling".
