Starting Monday, September 20, sports will resume at Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) secondary schools. We are excited that our secondary athletes and teams will be able to start next week. WRDSB staff have developed protocols and guidelines to ensure everyone has equitable access and opportunity to safely participate in sports.
To prioritize safety, privacy, and equity of access, students must confirm full immunization against COVID-19 (two doses plus 14-day waiting period) or confirm negative rapid antigen test results to their school twice per week.
Students will be provided with free rapid antigen testing kits.
As with previous school years, we do intend to invite volunteers to support athletic extracurriculars, but we are taking a cautious and staged approach to developing a process for their participation.
