Cavaliers News · Athletic Spring COVID Protocols


We are excited to be able to offer spring sports this year and Tri-County, the local health department and other local schools have worked together to provide protocols for the spring sports to help keep our student-athletes, coaches, officials and fans safe.  Because the COVID-19 situation can change quickly, we will continue to monitor the positive cases in our district and base our recommendations from the information that we receive.  We understand that these decisions may not always be ideal, but we appreciate your cooperation in this matter as we continue to try and provide our students with the opportunity to compete in the sports they love.
