At the October 18 Board meeting, the following procedures were put in place for our athletic teams:
Athletic Event Mask Procedures for Seneca School Teams:
If the middle school and high school are masked during the school day, school athletic teams will follow the procedures outlined below in regards to athletic events and practices:
-During practices, masks are optional if there are no other teams in the gym.
-During events, students will wear masks to the site and before suiting up for the game. Upon going to the locker room and changing for the game or event, masks become optional for team members until the game or event is concluded. After the game has concluded, students will then mask again upon leaving the locker room.
-This protocol applies to all team members, including coaches and managers.
-This applies to all events, home and away. If a host school is requiring masking at an away event, our school teams will follow the host school’s protocol.
This procedure would not supersede quarantine rules for close contacts, consistent with the guidelines of the school Covid plan, which are a separate issue. This protocol does not apply to spectators or students attending events.
