(Farmington, Mo.) MSHSAA released a statement on Monday that outlined ongoing discussions regarding potential changes to fall sports and activities.
The statement reads, “The MSHSAA office is currently working with schools in areas where local health departments have required virtual learning options only and are recommending no sports or activities in the fall…The Board [of Directors] and staff will discuss a wide range of ideas, which may include the postponement of fall activities, the ability of schools only offering distance learning to still participate in activities while not holding in-person classes, as well as possible regional competition outside the traditional season once a school is offering in-person learning.”
MSHSAA Executive Director Dr. Kerwin Urhahn says, “…the Board and staff want to discuss possibilities that would allow as many students to participate as safely as possible…For the schools currently planning to start the year as normal, our current hope is that the fall season will proceed to its fruition.”
As of now, there has been no indication from any schools in the Regional Radio listening area that they will be offering virtual learning only to begin the school year.
