Dear Parents & Guardians,
We are looking forward to kicking off the 21/22 Academic and Athletic school year in just a few weeks! As we look forward to our safe reopening and return to in person instruction for students, we would like to encourage you and your 6th - 8th grade student athlete to join one of our Fall, Winter or Spring sports this year. Our athletic department is working closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the DIAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (DSMAC) to ensure that our athletic program is following all infection control measures in the upcoming school year.
In order to prevent the spread of COVID and to maintain a safe and healthy practice and play environment, Kuumba will:
-Utilize social distancing
-Require face coverings at all times (indoors)
-Encourage students to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer regularly
-Properly clean all equipment
-Utilize weekly COVID screenings for all coaches, staff and students
-Require student(s) who are not feeling well and or becomes ill, to remain at home until cleared to return
All student athletes must complete a player participation agreement and have a signed parent permission slip on file in order to join a sports team. Additionally, all students must have a DIAA PPE sports physical before they are allowed to train, practice or play. (Note: please make sure that your family physician clears your child by checking the box on the physical form without restrictions and ensure that all forms are signed).
Physical forms are attached to this parent notice. You can also find the DIAA PPE forms also on our sports website at https://www.kuumbaacademysports.com
. If you have any questions or need further information regarding all sports activities, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please allow 24 hours for a return response to all requests. Please also remember that all student athletes must adhere and comply with the school’s student code of conduct Student Success Manual
