Participation in sports:
1. Is participation in the meets required? I’m not sure I feel comfortable with the “masks optional” policy for XC meets.
Participation is completely optional in all sports. To qualify for all-conference (in XC) or other honors, there will be the requirement to run in the conference meet (for letting purposes, this will be done on a coaches decision). Please make sure your coaches now in advance if you are considering holding your son or daughter out of competition. We just need to plan accordingly. XC has team limits based on the number of teams attending each event. I would like to get as many kids involved as possible, especially if they want to.
2. (Transportation questions) Can my licensed Sr. drive herself or and from games? Does she need to complete the CHCCS transportation in a privately owned vehicle form? What about the assumption of liability form (which says the driver must be 21)? Will she be allowed to drive to local away games without stopping at school first? (If my senior lives in Durham, will she be allowed to drive herself to and from the games in Durham?)
Yes, students may drive to CHCCS schools at this time (Carrboro and Chapel Hill). All students will be given forms (Field Hockey got yesterday, Volleyball and XC schedule for Thursday). The two forms are (1) permission from you as guardian to allow your son / daughter to drive to an event. Assumption of liability is that you are taking responsibility to get your child to each event. I will provide a bus as needed. All student athletes will need to check in at East first, and drive over together. All schools are requesting that we enter as teams.
3. Can parents drive athlete to events and can we watch?
Yes, you may drive kids to any and all events, you just need to wait until the bus arrives before your son or daughter attends the games. Also, all kids need to be temperature check and use the QR code at East before attending the game. Only Northwood is allowing fans at this time, and they are limited seats / tickets available. Most school will not allow fans or allow you to stand at fence lines.
4. Do we know which other schools will have pixelott, mask requirement, and check in procedures?
