Today the KSHSAA Board of Directors met to receive and consider the recommendation of the Board of Appeals to amend the restricted attendance rule put in place during the special BOD meeting held November 24. With a vote of 54-24, the following language was adopted:
Effective Thursday, December 10 through January 28, 2021, interscholastic activities will allow for attendance of up to two parents/guardians per participant(s) family as allowed by local board of education or health department restrictions.
All other risk mitigation policies put into place by the Board of Directors on November 24 remain in effect and shall be implemented and followed by member schools. Those include strict adherence to universal masking, extended practice moratorium (Dec 3- Jan 3), extended competition moratorium (Dec 23-Jan 7), and restrictions on Invitational Tournaments.
The decision to allow zero to 2 parents per participant will be on a game to game, week to week decision based on county COVID -19 rates in Marion County and/or the visiting team's county rate.
