Dear LPHS Families, the IHSA released an update regarding spring sports on April 1st, 2020. Below are some of the major points that were shared.
- Decisions regarding spring sports will be based upon the recommendations from state officials and medical experts.
- As of today, schools will remain closed through April 30th. The IHSA remains optimistic that resuming school on May 1st could still result in an abbreviated season with the IHSA State Series possibly being extended further into June.
- A determination on an appropriate acclimatization practice period would be made in advance of the resumption of activities.
At this time, no definitive actions have been made as the IHSA continues to monitor the fluid situation regarding COVID-19 and it’s impact on schools and extracurricular activities. More updates will be provided as they are announced.
For the full IHSA release, which includes a section of Frequently Asked Questions in regards to what is permitted for athletes, teams, and coaches during the current school closure, please visit www.ihsa.org.
As always, continue to practice safe, preventative measures in maintaining good health.
