“Fall” Sports Update 1/29/21

Athletics and extracurricular activities are critical components to the K-12 school experience. Following VDOE, CDC, and VHSL guidelines, CCPS has developed a Return-to-Play program.  Athletics coaches and extracurricular sponsors have received specific safety related  information pertaining to their sport or activity.
