Below is a press release from the VHSL that you may have already seen on social media. It looks like we are moving in the right direction which is definitely encouraging! This does not mean, however, that we can begin out-of-season practices just yet. A few bits of information I wanted to share to help dispel any rumors: In compliance with the Governor’s plan, it is important to note that before any out-of-season activity can begin, all schools must submit health plans to the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) outlining compliance with Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mitigation strategies. ( LCPS will need time to submit and this will not happen overnight.) A determination by LCPS has not been made yet but they have the authority to be more restrictive than the VHSL in permitting out of season practices. ( LCPS has made no decision yet. Once I am provided information I will share it with you.) If LCPS does decide to permit out of season practices. A VHSL physical and the online registration needs to be completed before athletes are cleared to practice. Online registration will not open until June 15th b/c of a glitch with the company uploading the forms. ( It is natural that parents were waiting to hear from the VHSL on sports before taking their children to get physicals. Parents should email completed physicals to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com since the building is closed.) When we do return to practices things will look different and we will have to abide by the VHSL SMAC guidelines. I wanted to make you all aware of the restrictions we might still face but I am very happy that the VHSL is talking about us playing again! Again, as soon as I know more I will share with you all. I am also going to put this information out to parents on raidersports.info. Thanks, Kate ? Michael Petrella Thu 6/11/2020 2:31 PM ? ? ? ? ?
