At this time, our school is following the Tier level recommendations from the SDHSAA in regard to limiting fans in attendance for the winter athletic events.
Here is a brief description of the levels: Tier 1 – Open Attendance – Steady/Decreasing rates of active cases, new cases, and hospitalizations in our area.
Tier 2 – Parents & Student Body Only – Slow/intermittent increase of active cases, new cases, and hospitalizations in our area. Isolated cases, no evidence of exposures in large communal settings.
Tier 3 – Student Body or Parents Only – Steady/incremental increase of active cases, new cases, and hospitalizations in our area. Sustained increases, potential exposure in large communal settings.
Tier 4 – No Fans - Sharp increase of active cases, new cases, and/or hospitalizations in our area WITHOUT concurrent increase of cases/contacts within the school setting or confirmed exposures in large communal settings.
The SDHSAA Board has also highly recommended wearing masks to help keep players and coaches healthy and eliminate postponing games and the disruption of the season
The outbreak and spread of local active cases will guide which Tier level we will be implementing. Visit our school website or Facebook page the day of the game for any fan restrictions.
Home games will be livestreamed through the NFHS network. Below is the linik to subscribe for viewing,
