The Ohio Department of Health and OHSAA are permitting all athletic teams to begin planning their restart for 2020. As a school district, we are excited to get our student-athletes back to training this summer and hopefully be able to compete next year. There are guidelines that will be put into place for the safety of our athletes and coaches. The athletic department and custodial staff, will work in collaboration with the county health department and the OHSAA to make everyone as safe as possible as we proceed.
