The winter athletic season, previously scheduled to start on January 4, 2021, is postponed until January 11, 2021. This will allow time following the winter break for staff to assess the current health environment and prepare for the return to athletics the following week.
On November 16, HCPSS originally made the decision to suspend all current in-person opportunities effective Thursday, November 19. Howard County continues to regularly remain above 5% COVID-19 test positivity rate and a case rate of more than 30 per 100,000. HCPSS will regularly monitor health metrics and update staff and the community the week following winter break.
HCPSS takes the safety and well-being of all of our students, staff and families very seriously, and hope that you are staying safe during this difficult time. Please visit the Howard County Health Department website for more information about the COVID-19 virus and how to remain safe.
Thank you for your understanding and continued collaboration as we stay safe, healthy and able to focus on teaching and learning.
