Resuming Athletic Competition

The Board of Trustees met Dec. 16 to consider next steps in athletic competition for NSD high school students. After considering input from athletes, parents of athletes, coaches, athletic directors, Southwest District Health and medical professionals, trustees voted to resume high school athletic competition, following Stage 2 protocols, effective immediately. The plan calls for no fans while we are in the Red category; games will be streamed. The district will determine out-of-area or overnight competitions on a case-by-case basis. The board will meet again on Jan. 5 to reevaluate the impact of the COVID-19 virus on district academic operations.
