District 10 is in a ‘wait and see’ approach in regards to the 2020-2021 winter sports season.
During Tuesday’s District 10 Committee meeting via Zoom, winter sports was the main topic on the agenda, but there just aren’t ton of answers at this juncture.
“It’s wait and see,” said District 10 Chairman Pete Iacino. “At this point, it’s one day at a time. If you can practice, go ahead and practice. If you can play, as long as you have the required 15 practices in, go ahead and play.”
Schools across District 10 have taken different approaches.
Warren County is proceeding, as well as some school districts in Mercer, Venango and Erie Counties, among others.
The Crawford Central School District, which includes Meadville and Cochranton, voted to shut down winter sports practices during remote learning, which they are moving to on Dec. 1.
“We will continue to monitor local conditions and consult with state and local health officials with the goal of returning to in-person instruction as soon as it is safe to do so,” the district said in a press release.
The first official play date is Friday, Dec. 11.
