Hayden High School cancels fall sports

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

  Hayden High School will be canceling all fall sports for the health and safety of student athletes, families, and community.

  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hayden High School will not be participating in fall sports. The concern is that playing sports could increase COVID-19 exposure to our student athletes, families, and community. The safety of everyone outweighs the need to play sports and risks the lives of the most vulnerable in our community.

  The school district’s top priority is the health of our students, families, and community. The sacrifice of a high school sport season in the middle of the worst pandemic in 100 years is the most responsible and the right thing to do.

  The health risks are too high for our district to play sports which could create a COVID-19 community spread. Unfortunately, the virus has not gone away, and children and adults can become asymptomatic and pass it to others. Athletes could contract COVID-19 and unknowingly pass the virus to family members and they could die. Many of our families are multi-generational which creates an additional health risk. It is simply too dangerous to play fall sports that will risk the safety and lives of our student athletes, families, and community, right now.
