    Middle School Athletics Update Spring 2021

    The Athletics Department has been working closely with middle school building leaders and staff to determine middle school athletics programming for the remainder of the school year.

    After extensive consideration, middle school athletics will not be provided this spring.

    We know many students will be disappointed by this decision, but with the Governor’s executive order to open all school buildings for in-person learning by April 19, middle schools are prioritizing creating instructional schedules and confirming logistics to bring students back to school safely.

    High schools have dedicated athletics staff to oversee health and safety protocols under the guidance of WIAA. Middle schools do not have dedicated athletics staff, they rely on educators in the building who provide coaching supports outside of their regular instructional duties. As we reopen school buildings, our middle school educators will be focused on ensuring safe, in-person instruction.

    We will align middle school sports to start in conjunction with high school in the fall, the way we would in a non-pandemic year. We would like to acknowledge the dedicated work and input of the Middle School Steering Committee.
