As of July 22, the 14-day rolling average of new cases of COVID-19 in the Anchorage municipality moved to 29. This change officially moves us into the Anchorage School District’s high-risk category. As a result, the start of fall sports practices, which were scheduled to begin July 29th, is postponed until at least August 5th. Our first practice and parent meeting will therefore not be happening as scheduled on July 29th. In keeping with the District’s process for monitoring athletics and academics, ASD will continue to monitor the numbers daily and make a determination every two weeks about the ongoing status of fall sports and activities. We will keep you updated as we receive new information.
Please continue to register through PlanetHS: https://planeths.com. You may wish to defer registering /paying fees through ASD’s ParentConnect until we know more.
Coach Luke encourages all athletes to keep training through this set-back, so that they are ready to go when team sports open back up. The best thing our athletes can do now is to:
· tighten-up their social distancing,
· wear masks, and
· wash their hands
If we can get our community on board with this, we’ll have a better chance of reducing our numbers to levels that support the return to sports and classrooms.
Since we all have to wear masks, let’s set an example for our friends and community, and show your school and team pride:
Here is the link for our single-layer "Athlete mask.” These have been so popular, we’ve had to order more, so be sure to get yours. Now open to all Service athletes:
Here’s the link for our multi-layer "Cougar Community mask,” a much more protective mask for friends, family, and supporters. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1lSGZnIcrH0XRyBphJ5d9lS989ArLyT2f-kFjIOPLslM/edit#response=ACYDBNgqL1R85vlVmG79m9odIXHwM8qwctXEQaVbQqITgkDyel1a__5RsCkUaZpZpFKj7Fk
We can do this! Go Cougars!
