Dear South Carroll Community,
Below is an announcement from Mr. Duffy Supervisor of Athletics for Carroll County Public Schools.
Dear CCPS Families,
At Wednesday night’s Board of Education meeting, I announced that we will cease all Return to play activities after Wednesday November 25, 2020. This will include spring sports competitive activities, weight room usage, and any season’s two students per day that may have been taking place. Additionally, based upon the Board's decision to move to a fully virtual format, all indoor activities will cease beginning tomorrow. We will have a complete shutdown of all CCPS athletic activities after next Wednesday.
I also announced we would delay the start of the winter tryout period from December 7, 2020 until December 14, 2020. During the time from Thanksgiving until the first day of tryouts, we are asking everyone (coaches and students) to stay within their own bubbles. It is our hope that the two-week period will function as a quarantine period before bringing students into the buildings for athletics.
The rising number of cases in Carroll County as well as across the state and nation gives us great pause and there is still no guarantee we will be able to begin winter sports as planned, even on this new calendar. We believe only through the willingness of everyone involved to quarantine during that two-week period lies our only chance of beginning winter sports in a timely manner.
We are asking, in fact pleading, with everyone to be responsible during this time so that our students and coaches have an opportunity to participate in the interscholastic athletics program.
If you have any particular questions, please let me know.
Michael Duffy, CMAA
Supervisor of Athletics
Carroll County Public Schools
A special note: South Carroll High School will end spring and Weight training pods after Tuesday November 24th, 2020.
