23 – COVID-19 Update – July 30 – Fall Athletics

July 30, 2020

Good Morning!

As most of you know the WIAA has made a decision to change the start date to most fall sports.  Last night, July 29th, the Oconto Falls School Board decided to honor the change in start dates and gave us the ok to move forward with plans at the High School to start our season on the new dates.  Here are the new start dates.

Girls Golf – August 17
Boys and Girls Cross Country – August 17
Cheer – August 17 (tryouts are still scheduled for the week of August 3)
Dance – August 17
Volleyball – September 7 – this is Labor Day but we are still starting
Football – September 7  – this is Labor Day but we are still starting

The fall parent/athlete meeting that was scheduled for Monday, August 3rd has been cancelled.  We are still working on how a parent meeting can happen for each sport.  Those details have not been determined at this time.  All parents and athletes should be in communication with their fall coach.  

Attached is a video showing you how to check the status of your child’s online forms and athletic physical and alternate year cards.  Please watch the video and go into your parent access for Skyward and fill out the online forms for the 2020-2021 school year.  All these forms need to be filled out for your child to be eligible. 

As we progress through the next month we will be working on making changes to our sports season to do our best to prevent the spread of the virus.  Many things will change but keep in mind our goal is to keep your child safe while still offering them an opportunity to do something they love.  We will need your help and understanding during these difficult times and decisions.  Your child’s social, emotional and physical well being will be first and foremost in our mind as we progress through the upcoming months.    

Please feel free to call the school or email me if you have any questions or concerns.
