Athletics & Extracurricular Letter

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff:

After analyzing family survey data, considering the safety and security of students, faculty and staff, and engaging in ongoing discussions with members of the Nazareth community, the decision has made to begin the school year with distance learning. As a result, Nazareth will not be participating in any team sports this fall. The affected sports are volleyball, football, cross country, and cheerleading. This includes in-person extra-curricular clubs and activities as well. Virtual clubs will still be taking place as part of our distance learning agenda.

If the CHSAA chooses to institute a modified season approach (for sports) to commence in January, and we have resumed the hybrid/blended phase or returned to normalized in-school operations by that time, Nazareth will participate in team sports and resume in-person after school activities. This design would enable all fall sports to be played sometime in the spring.

However, if a family elects to continue distance learning (for their child) after we have moved into hybrid/blended model or full in-school instruction, that student will not be allowed to participate in athletics or in person after school activities.

The health and wellbeing of the Nazareth community is our top priority. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact myself, or Mr. Al Pratt.
