OSSAA Says Schools Remain Closed Until June 1

As the official close of the school year draws near, we are receiving an increased number of calls regarding summer activities, what will be allowed and not allowed for the students, coaches, and directors.

While we felt that it was important to establish statewide guidance for activities during the school year regarding the Covid-19 situation, we feel that it is equally important to provide some guidance for the start of our summer activities.

Even though our state has started the “re-opening” process, we feel it is important for our member school facilities to remain closed until at least June 1. This will give us enough time to review data from our state and local government entities, our health-care professionals, and the other national sports and activities governing bodies. Based on the information we have at that time, we could adjust the June 1 date and/or add or relax restrictions to the summer activities regulations. Our focus has become doing all we can do to help preserve the opening of schools and activities in the fall.

We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and will update this page when and if changes need to be made.
