Canceled Athletics Contests, Dec. 14, 2021
With the rapidly rising number of COVID-19 cases impacting several HCPSS high schools, all HCPSS athletics contests and many extracurricular activities were canceled today and postponed for a later date to be announced. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for the health of our students and staff. HCPSS is reviewing positive case and outbreak data. Additional information regarding future athletic events and extracurricular activities will be provided tomorrow, Dec. 15.
My opinion: It is unlikely that the COVID-19 positivity numbers are going to drastically drop in the coming days…so I would keep an eye out for future announcements. Hopefully this does not significantly pause or cancel the Winter Sports Season for High Schools.
