STUDENT - ATHLETE COVID 19 RETURN TO PLAY POLICY (DPH / CIAC):

From the CIAC Approved Winter Sports Plan v1-14-2020: (page 5)

For clarification, it is DPH’s position that a return to athletics should include the full 14-day quarantine period. This means that a student-athlete may return to in-person instruction after a shorter quarantine period (i.e., 10 days), however, must wait the full 14-days prior to returning to athletics.   

(*Please note the above guidance was developed in consultation with the CSMS Sports Medicine Committee and is informed by AAP COVID-19 Interim Guidelines. While this guidance references a potential gradual return after 10-days, the DPH updated guidance to CIAC requires a 14-day period prior to any return of a COVID-19 quarantined student to athletics.)  

Guidance on Return-to-Play after COVID-19 Infection

A graduated return-to-play protocol can begin once an athlete has been cleared by a licensed medical provider (cardiologist for moderate to severe COVID-19 symptoms) and feels well when performing normal activities of daily living. The progression should be performed over the course of a 7-day minimum.

Welcome

Athletics are an integral part of the school’s educational program. The opportunity to try-out for interscholastic teams is available to students in Grades 6-8. Sports offerings include field hockey and  soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and softball and baseball in the spring. Intramural Sports will also be offered to Grades 5-8 but will vary by season.
