HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS AND ACTIVITIES

  • UPDATE ON SCHOOL-SPONSORED ATHLETICS/ACTIVITIES

    Blue Valley Schools remains committed to offering students the opportunity to participate in winter activities and athletics as long as it is safe to do so. To protect the health and safety of students and staff while participating in co-curricular and extracurricular activities, the district will be following the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) Board of Directors approved recommendations for winter activities/athletics. 


    The KSHSAA Board of Directors voted in favor to begin the winter activity competition season on Dec. 1 and continue through Dec. 22 before taking a winter moratorium (no practice and no competitions beginning Dec. 23). The board also took action to extend the moratorium on practice and competition through Jan. 3. Practices may resume on Jan. 4 and competitions may resume on Jan. 8. 

     

    Other items resulting from the KSHSAA Board of Directors Meeting:


    High school activities and athletics

    • Activities and athletics will continue in December as scheduled.

    • No spectators at competitions from Nov. 30 through Jan. 28, 2021, to minimize the risk of exposure while still providing opportunities for students.

    • No winter activities and athletics practices, performances or competitions between Dec. 23 and Jan. 3. Activities and athletics resume on Jan. 4 with in-person competitions beginning on Jan. 8. 

    • Blue Valley has partnered with the NFHS network to livestream events. Competitions from the main gymnasium will be livestreamed. Limited spectator attendance in February based on forthcoming KSHSAA guidance.

    • Previously scheduled Performing Arts events may take place in person. However, they will be livestreamed as there will be no audiences beginning Nov. 30 to minimize the risk of exposure while still providing opportunities for students.

    • Debate and scholars’ bowl competitions will be held virtually.

    • Mandatory universal masking, with the exception of athletes during the time they are competing and officials during live action. When the presence of a mask poses a risk to the student athlete’s safety, during activities of physical exertion, the mask may be removed.
