Announcement Concerning Extracurricular and Athletic Activities - December 18, 2020
Wilson County Schools will be suspending all extracurricular competitions and performances effective on Monday, December 21st, 2020. This suspension is planned to be in place until Sunday, January 3rd. It is the intention of the district to allow these activities to resume on Monday, January 4th.
The reason for this suspension is due to the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases that are currently trending in Wilson County. In an effort to minimize exposure for students, student athletes, coaches, support staff, parents and fans – we feel this action is necessary to help keep all parties involved safe during this time.
We understand the disappointment that comes with this announcement, as this is an action we did not want to implement. However, community health and safety is paramount during this ongoing pandemic.
While any district affiliated athletic, band, cheer or JROTC competitions and performances will be suspended during this time, practices and conditioning among these groups are still permitted with health protocols currently in place.
Any competitions or performances previously scheduled for Friday, December 18th or Saturday, December 19th will still take place.
