Campbell County Public Schools announced that high schools sports would be returning on December 7, issuing the following statement today:
Plans to return to Virginia High School League competition are underway for Campbell County Public Schools. Following the guidance provided by Governor Northam’s Executive Order 67 and the Virginia High School League (VHSL), CCPS plans to have students and coaches return on December 7 for season one (winter sports). Students should check their school websites for tryout information, including health and safety requirements.
The latest executive order from Governor Northam indicates the need to limit capacities in our gyms; therefore, at this time, spectators will not be allowed to attend games or activities, per Seminole and Dogwood District decisions. We understand this decision will be very disappointing, so we are attempting to broadcast our games through live streaming services provided by the National Federation of High Schools. For more information regarding streaming services, please go to nfhsnetwork.com. There is a fee for this subscription service; however, it is a substantial saving compared to in-person, per-game ticket prices. We will provide more information regarding this streaming service when it is fully operational.
Campbell County Public Schools is committed to providing our students with opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities safely. Information regarding sport specific mitigation strategies can be found at vhsl.org. CCPS will continue to closely monitor the local health data and may postpone or suspend all or some activities during periods of substantial COVID-19 transmissions in the community or schools.
If you have any questions, please contact your school’s athletic director or visit your school’s website for more information related to your student-athletes’ return to athletic competition.
