The Harrisburg School District will begin winter athletics on Friday, January 8, 2021. The school district has put a number of new mitigation initiatives in place, which include, but is not limited to:
Split practices to reduce the number of participants;
Limited roster sizes;
Transition windows between practices; and
No spectators at events (events will be live streamed).
The aforementioned is in addition to mandatory mask wearing and other mitigation procedures adopted during the fall season. A parenteral waiver will again be required. The Harrisburg School District will continue to monitor Covid-19 data on a weekly basis. The District reserves the right to pause workouts and cancel scheduled games if:
The weekly positivity and incidence rates show a sustained increase;
We begin to see our players or coaches contract Covid-19; and/or
We receive information and/or recommendations from local health professionals to postpone activities.
No one can predict how the virus may or may not impact this plan, but we are going to give winter athletics a chance to participate during this very difficult time. I thank you in advance for working with Athletic Director, Calvin Everett to keep our students safe as we attempt to begin winter athletics.
