Update re Governor Cuomo’s Fall Sports Announcement Today
Dear RMS and RHS Parents and Guardians,
In a news briefing earlier today, Governor Cuomo announced that some “low-risk” fall sports can begin on September 21, and that “high-risk” sports can begin practices. Now that the Governor has released this guidance, Section Executive Directors and NYSPHSAA (New York State High School Athletic Association) officers will meet to discuss next steps. Immediately after the Section meeting, a meeting of the NYSPHSAA COVID-19 Task Force will take place. We expect that NYSPHSAA will provide guidance to local school districts after that second meeting.
I believe I will have concrete information to provide to you by the end of the week. In the meantime, sit tight and think good thoughts for our student-athletes. This is a very encouraging development!
