On Thursday, May 21, the Ohio Department of Health, the OHSAA, and Governor DeWine’s office authorized the beginning of individual skills training for all extracurricular activities. The order allows school facilities to be open specifically and exclusively for extracurricular purposes. Our facilities will reopen as follows:
Monday, June 8: High school fall athletic programs and band
Monday, June 22: High school winter and spring athletic programs and junior high activities
Pickerington Local School District facilities will reopen for our students and staff only. Our facilities at the high school and junior high’s will remain closed to the public at this time.
Pickerington Local School District has established general guidelines as well as guidelines for parents. Pickerington Local School District cannot stress enough the importance of ALL families, students, coaches, and directors reviewing these documents as our extracurricular practices have changed in response to COVID-19. As parents of our students, you play a major role in our reopening, if not the most important role. Your evaluation of your child’s health every day is critical as our goal continues to maintain the safety of your son/daughter, your family, our students, staff and the entire community.
A Return to Play waiver must be completed and handed into the coach before any participation can happen. Parents/Guardians will also be required to fill out a daily symptom check before their student athlete will be allowed to participate.
Guidelines, Return to Play Waiver and Daily Symptom check document can all be found under the More Tab.
