Statement from Majalise Tolan Secondary Director, Lincoln County School District:
As of Feb. 26th, Lincoln County School District will operate all of its athletic events under the direction of Oregon Sector Guidance at a Lower Risk level. This means that onsite testing is no longer required by the state for LCSD for contact football and player pad progression will resume on Feb. 26th.
Although we will begin to evaluate spectator attendance, we are not adding spectators beyond senior nights to our events just yet. It is important for LCSD coaches, staff, and student-athletes to develop safe and equitable spectator procedures and are re-evaluating current game management practices, supervision expectations, and processes under this new guidance. We know families are excited to watch their student-athletes play and will try to have streaming options available as often as possible.
We appreciate and honor the work our families, staff, and student-athletes have been doing to follow safe and healthy procedures since resuming sports on October 12, 2020. We will not take this new status lightly and will continue visual screening of student-athletes and staff, frequent sanitation of equipment, physical distancing when not in direct competition, wearing masks, and washing/sanitizing our hands. We want to stay safe and stay open.
