Fall Athletics Update

 

On July 23, the Board of Directors of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) voted to delay the start of all fall athletic seasons to begin practices on Monday, August 24, 2020. Summer conditioning is approved to continue.

The Board will reconvene on August 17 to reassess COVID-19 status and data and reevaluate with the Sports Medical Advisory Committee. During this three week delay, I will work closely with the FHSAA, School administration, and surrounding county athletic directors to ensure that our plans for successful resumption of practices and competition are complete and reflect the latest safety protocols and recommendations. New fall athletic dates, time, and locations have been adjusted below.

If your family decides to register your child for St. Johns’ distance learning due to health concerns, communication with the athletic director and Head of School will be required to participate in FHSAA athletics at St. Johns Country Day School.

Before the first day of practice, please be sure that you have your child’s sports physical form uploaded through Magnus Health Link, on My School App, or through the new Magnus Health app, before the first day of practice. The required “EL-2” and “EL-3” athletics physical and consent and release forms are available on the Middle and Upper School My School App pages. Click on “Topics” and “Athletics.”

In the interest of the health and safety of all of our athletes and coaching staff, we ask that if your athlete is experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, particularly a fever of 100.4 or higher, please keep your athlete at home and do not allow them to return to practice until they have been fever-free for 72 hours.
