Governor Lamont made the announcement today that schools in Connecticut will remain closed for the rest of the academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I regret to inform you that the CIAC made the following statement shortly after in regards to the 2020 spring athletic season.
"The CIAC’s consideration for any spring sport experience has always been contingent on the re-opening of schools for in-person instruction. This morning, Governor Lamont ordered the cancellation of in-school classes for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Therefore, there will not be a 2020 CIAC spring sports season. The CIAC empathizes with our school communities and the experiences lost due to COVID-19. Our focus is now on completing guidelines for summer contact and resocialization of CIAC sports in the fall."
We all were hoping for a different outcome. We all know the value that interscholastic athletics has in the development of our student athletes. However, the decision to cancel the spring athletic season has all of our student's best interests at heart. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. I thank you for your patience and teamwork as we work through this difficult time together.
