The Alexander Central High School Athletic Department is preparing to implement infection prevention measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while student-athletes are participating in school athletic functions. As the state of North Carolina continues its phased reopening and with the ACHS Administration announcement of summer plans for athletics potentially restarting on July 6th if pandemic conditions in NC continue to improve, we want to prepare as much as possible to continue to provide a quality athletic experience for our student athletes.
It is important that our school personnel (coaches, staff, and administration) begin to prepare in the anticipation of this dead period ending. Our staff along with our student-athletes will follow the policies outlined below from State, NCHSAA, and Local officials. The health and safety of our student-athletes is the utmost priority, and as such these policies will be strictly enforced.
This plan is an update that is being provided to our School System, Administration, Coaches, Players, Parents, and Community as we continue to navigate through these challenging times. Under no circumstances is this plan finalized and will most likely change as we continue to receive updates for the Governor, NCDHHS, NCHSAA, and the CDC. Additionally, we recognize that the Board of Education, Superintendent, Principal, and Athletic Director will discuss the resumption of all athletic activities.
