Athletics Restart 2020
In consultation with local health officials and a thorough review of local COVID-19 data, Stanly County Schools has decided to postpone the restart of athletics. Stanly County Schools was scheduled to begin summer workouts with high school fall sports on Monday, July 6th. This date will now be rescheduled as soon as local data indicates it is safe to do so.
Our decision to push back the restart of athletics aligns with Governor Cooper's directive for our state in light of the rising number of positive cases. In fact, according to the Harvard Global Health Institute, Stanly County ranks seventh in the state in the number of new cases in the last week.
We will continue to monitor the data in our community and consult with local health officials as we work to get our athletes back on the playing field.
