Dear SCPS Families,
Based on Governor Northam’s Executive Order 72, and recommendations from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia High School League (VHSL), SCPS has made the decision to postpone winter sports until further clarification is provided.
These new requirements state that athletes in certain sports must wear masks at all times during group training, competition, and on the sidelines.
I understand this is a difficult time for our student athletes, and I understand the many benefits participation in sports provides. However, the new executive orders released yesterday require further clarification from the VHSL and VDH on how these requirements will impact our student athletes.
I will work with my administrative team to provide further clarification from VHSL and VDH during the first week in January.
Scott R. Kizner, Ph.D.
