On-Campus Athletics & Extracurricular Activities Update
Huntsville City Schools will initiate on-campus athletics and extracurricular activity practices and meetings beginning no earlier than Monday, June 8, 2020.
Although the State Health Officer Safer at Home Order Amendment of May 21, and the concurrently issued Alabama High School Athletic Association guidance permits initiation of on-campus athletics and extracurricular activity practices and meetings as early as June 1, the State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Eric Mackey, has given individual district superintendents the authority to do our own risk assessments and select initiation dates that allow us to develop and implement risk mitigation practices and processes that we believe are necessary.
We will be sharing more information at the June 4 Board of Education Work Session. HCS is working to enable the best possible risk mitigation effort before welcoming students, staff, and faculty back to campuses.
