  3. Level and consistent playing field for all schools in District IV.

  4. Adaptability and flexibility as we learn and things evolve with COVID-19.

AD’s and coaches will work together to create plans for their school based on the following information. 

Key aspects to consider when planning:

  • Scheduling

  • Communication

  • Following guidelines

  • Face-masks as needed

  • Areas to sanitize.  Who’s paying for it? Are sanitizing/deep cleaning dates built in the summer schedule?

  • Sanitize all equipment (before and after)

  • Keep athletes in same groups throughout the summer (especially in June)

All Stages – individuals should continue to: Engage in physical distancing of at least six feet, wear face coverings in public places, stay home if sick, practice good hand hygiene, cover coughs and sneezes, disinfect surfaces and objects regularly.
