The purpose of this document is to serve as the guidance for AASD Students and Student-Athletes to return to sports and extracurricular activity in a safe and effective manner. The resources cited in the reference list attached to this document are the most current and available to the COVID-19 Athletics Team. AASD has taken the necessary precautions and recommendations from the federal, state, and local governments, CDC, PA DOH, as well as the NFHS and PIAA. A list of resources utilized while developing this plan is included in this document.
While it is not possible to eliminate all risk of furthering the spread of COVID-19, the current science suggests there are many steps schools can take to reduce the risks to students, coaches, staff and their families. With the constant change that comes with these types of recommendations and guidelines, please know that we will monitor guidance/guidelines as they are released for any changes/updates. AASD realizes the knowledge regarding COVID-19 is constantly changing as new information and treatments become available. The recommendations contained in this document will be adjusted as needed as new information becomes available in order to decrease the risk of exposure for our staff, students, and spectators.
It is also important to note that while the status of the current phase may change, this document is meant to be utilized and referred to when those situations present themselves. Additionally, this document may be revised at any time new guidelines are provided to AASD.
