Athletics update September 9, 2020
The Murrieta Valley Unified School District values our athletic programs and the opportunities they provide for our high school students. School connectedness through athletics provides our students with lifelong friendships and dynamic opportunities to thrive in our school cultures. On August 3, 2020, the California Department of Public Health published guidelines for sports and extra-curricular activities. Following the county, state and federal health and safety guidelines, this document was prepared to guide coaches and instructors through the return of athletic training opportunities and workouts in a COVID-19 environment.
The return to formal team practices, preparation for competition and competition is currently not authorized under state and county regulations. Guidance for that phase of activity will be provided when state and local authorities authorize those activities.
Please note that this document is fluid and guidelines and recommendations will be modified as county, state, and federal health and safety guidelines change.
