Athletic Activities and Extra-curricular activities Suspended March 17th through April 5th

Attention parents/guardians/athletes;
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Lewiston School District athletics and extra-curricular
activities will be suspended from Tuesday, March 17th through Sunday, April 5th. This
suspension includes practices and competitions. During this time, Coaches and Schools are not
allowed to let athletes or outside groups to use school athletic facilities for extra-curricular
activities. During this suspension, all district athletic facilities will be unavailable for use by
outside entities.
The decision to suspend extra-curricular activities was made after consultation with Public
Health officials and the Idaho High School Activities Association.
District officials will continue to monitor the situation. As we gather information a decision will
be made on the remainder of our spring athletics and activities seasons.
Please see the updated email recently sent via the Idaho High School Activities Association
The Idaho High School Activities Association, in the response to COVID-19, and to best
serve our member schools, student participants, coaches and Idaho families are
announcing the following:
• Cancellation of the Association’s State Cheer/Dance Championships, this event will not
be re-scheduled.
• The State Debate Championship is still postponed as we work on the possibility of
combining with the State Speech Championships.
• Suspension of sanctioned sports and activities for all of its member schools effective
Tuesday, March 17 through Sunday April 5th.
Implementing cancellations and/or suspension is taken in part with consultation with
public health officials to implement best practices in slowing the spread of COVID 19 and
therefore aid in protection of students and the general public; to reduce competitive
inequity among member schools and in an effort to have the opportunity to hold our spring
state tournaments/events on the assigned dates/sites as those dates will not be extended.
During the suspension, IHSAA member schools are not to compete in games or contests.
Member schools are not to conduct practices in IHSAA sanctioned sports at any location.
Neither member schools nor their coaches nor student athletes are to hold meetings.
Member schools are not to allow students or coaches at any IHSAA member school to use
the school’s athletic facilities for a practice, game or contest in any IHSAA sanctioned sport
regardless of the affiliation (club or otherwise) of the group seeking to use the facilities. The
use of athletic facilities for currently scheduled classes as a part of the regular school
curriculum such as P.E. classes is allowed. Rule 8-11, Outside Competition is still in effect.

Starting Wednesday, April 3rd, students will begin ISAT assessments at Sacajawea.  In order to minimize having students pulled during a test session, we would appreciate it if parents could give us at least one day notice on any appointment, trip, etc. that would result in a student needing to leave school prior to the end of the school day.  Thank you for your assistance in this process.
