Athletics Update as of August 14

Upper School Sports for Fall 2020

Together with our fellow Emerald Sound Conference member schools and following EPS’s decision to start the school year remotely, we have made the decision to offer athletics beginning in WIAA Season 2 and continuing in Season 3 and 4. There will be no athletics offered in Season 1. Instead, Season 1 sports have been moved into season 3 per the current WIAA guidance.

We know that exercising and participating in activities and sports are important for our students’ mental health and well-being. In addition, sports are a great way for students to connect with their friends, coaches and classmates. Our current plan is to offer out-of-season athletic opportunities between September 28 to November 30 if conditions are safe enough to do so. This decision will largely depend on the input and guidance we receive from our local department of health as well as the infection rates and phasing provided by our Governor. Please stay tuned for more information on that in an upcoming Community Briefing.

Middle School Sports

The 5th/6th soccer, volleyball, and basketball will remain during the school day with remote practices until we are back on campus. All other sports and all competitions will be postponed until after the New Year. We will have an updated EPS Middle School Sports Season calendar by the end of September.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Athletics Director Kim Eng.
