At a special meeting of the Lower Merion Board of School Directors on Monday, June 22, 2020, the Board approved a Healthy and Safety Plan for Athletics. The plan was developed in accordance with guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletics Association (PIAA).
The Board's approval of this plan will enable teams to hold voluntary summer practices for fall sports, beginning on July 6, 2020.
All student athletes and their parents/guardians are urged to review the plan prior to deciding whether to participate in athletic activities.
Coaches, Athletics and Activities Directors, and Student Health Services staff will be monitoring plan compliance, behaviors and screening results. Changes to the Plan and/or to health and safety practices may be made as warranted.
