Posted on July 22, 2020 by Staff reports

Pending school board approval on Thursday, fall sports for Santa Rosa County District Schools will begin August 17, and the first regular season contest will take place September 4.

Per SRCDS there will be a re-organization meeting on August 10 to determine moving forward. 

“Schools will follow guidelines based on the July 23rd board approved re-opening school protocol for practices and contests,” stated Jason Weeks, director of high school education. “A specific protocol for athletic contests will be released on or before August 10.”

Weeks said the district is working with neighboring counties, including Escambia and Okaloosa, as well as the local health department and Baptist Medical Group to develop sport-specific protocols.
