Dear Parents and Student Athletes,

As we return to practices and games on school campuses during the Fall Season, I wanted to share the protocols that will be in place.  Based on CDC, NYSED and Adirondack League guidelines the following Covid protocols are in place for the start of the Fall Sports Season:

Masks Required indoors- Based on the recommendations of the CDC, all individuals will be required to wear masks in school and on buses as the year begins regardless of vaccination status. Currently, masks are optional outside of buildings on school grounds.
