We have had numerous conversations with other area schools, including our Gold Coast league opponents, and a majority of them have made the decision to cancel fall sports. We too have made the difficult decision to cancel Session 1 of Middle School athletics, which includes cross country, flag football, tackle football, and volleyball. We feel that this decision is in the best health and safety interests of our student-athletes, families, coaches, and staff.
Physical education will continue to be a part of the academic day and students will be encouraged to leave campus immediately after school. We are hopeful for a return to Middle School athletics in October for Session 2. This return will be dependent on local conditions and the current guidance provided by all resources at our disposal, including national experts and the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), of which our Middle School program is also a member.
