In light of the new June 10 requirements by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all school districts are required to create, implement, and adopt an Athletics Health and Safety Plan. This plan must be aligned to the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Preliminary Guidance on Reopening document prior to conducting sports-related activities with students. Additionally, the plan will be made available to our families and posted on our district website. It is our goal to safely reopen interscholastic athletics programs for the return participation of student-athletes on or about July 1, 2020. This plan will be applicable to all sports as well as other after school extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities that occur during the school day, will follow the District Health and Safety Plan.
Indiana Area School District will take the necessary precautions and recommendations from the federal, state, and local governments; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); PA Department of Health (DOH); the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS); and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA).
IASD realizes the knowledge regarding COVID-19 is constantly changing as new information and treatments become available. These recommendations will be adjusted accordingly in order to decrease the risk of exposure for our staff, students, and spectators.
Please note that information in the plan is subject to change due to revisions, adoptions, and deletions made by the federal, state, and local governments or agencies included the IASD Board of Directors.
