The Kent School District (KSD) has postponed the start of all high school and middle school athletics. The exact date for Season One has yet to be determined but will be no sooner than February 22, 2021. However, this date is not confirmed and is for planning purposes only. A final decision on a return date will be based on public health guidance, the spread of the virus in our community, and bargaining with our labor partners.

We are working with athletic directors, coaches, and club advisors to continue extra-curricular activities that can be done remotely.

KSD recognizes the important role extra-curricular activities like athletics have in students’ growth and development and is continuing to prepare for the safe and healthy implementation of activities in alignment with public health guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The consideration for a return to limited in-person extra-curricular activities has been and continues to be part of our reopening plans.

Students and families who are registered and cleared for athletics through FamilyID will receive communication from their building athletic director related to procedures and protocols when athletics and activities do resume in person.

The situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve with each passing day. Please continue to check the KSD Athletics page for the most up to date and accurate information.

KSD Leadership is committed to the health and safety of all students and staff. Our commitment to learning is unwavering and our relationship with labor partners remains strong.
