Dear Middle School Athletes and Families,
This week, Montrose County School District (MCSD) made the decision to re-start middle school sports (starting with football) for the fall season, with adjustments made due to COVID-19.
Check your middle school’s webpage for school specific details (such as this year’s middle school football schedule and more).
Other MCSD updates will be forthcoming, which will include:
• A comprehensive Return to Play plan for middle school sports, which will include annexes and details regarding Personal Protective Equipment, fan and player capacities, cohorts, screening, and much more.
• Guidance on middle school volleyball (which is presently postponed). MCSD is committed to offering middle school athletes an opportunity to compete in volleyball this year.
• State guidance on COVID-19 protocols for all competitive sports from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) which historically have guided all MCSD secondary sports.
• Fan protocols for at all indoor and outdoor events.
• A detailed list of all re-started middle school sports and timelines (initially, all middle school sports were cancelled).
• Details on the intramural nature of middle school sports this season (due to COVID-19, sports competition will remain between MCSD middle schools only).
Expect this information to post early next week.
For players interested in competing in middle school football, contact your school’s athletic director or football coach to get details you need to be ready for this season. Be sure to make contact as early as possible this week.
For all questions prior to the publication of our MCSD protocols, please contact your athlete’s school directly. Good luck on the field of play!
Sincerely,
Montrose County School District RE-1J
