An acclimatization schedule has been approved for lower-risk winter sports, and contact days are available to fall, spring and summer athletics on an unlimited basis.

Lower-risk winter sports will receive a season start date soon, while the likelihood of events being held in higher-risk sports this school year continues to decrease.
